Monash University Looking For Companies To Host Short Term WIL Internships For Students
MONASH ENGINEERING WORK INTEGRATED LEARNING (WIL)
Monash Engineering internship program offers you the chance to host the Master of Advanced Engineering students for a work placement. Advance your project with an intern from the best engineering university in Australia.*
A TOTAL LEARNING EXPERIENCE
At Monash, all of our engineering courses aim to produce highly skilled engineers who are ready for work and ready for the world.
MONASH ENGINEERING – NO. 1 IN AUSTRALIA
Monash University is ranked as the best university in Australia for engineering and technology by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings by Subject 2018. We are also in the top 1 per cent of world universities (ranked 80th) according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018, and a member of the prestigious Group of Eight Universities in Australia.
ENGINEERS GEARED FOR INNOVATION
The Master of Advanced Engineering is different to other engineering master programs – moving students beyond a base-level engineering qualification, to explore a specialisation at an advanced level.
Designed in conjunction with Engineers Australia, the course has been created for engineering students or professionals who have already achieved their four-year undergraduate engineering (honours) degree. The Monash Master of Advanced Engineering was the first master course to provide accelerated progress towards attaining Chartered Engineering status in Australia.
ADVANCE YOUR PROJECT WITH A MONASH ENGINEER
With diverse professional and academic experience, Master of Advanced Engineering students bring fresh approaches to complex problem solving.
The Master of Advanced Engineering is a one or two year program. You can choose engineers from 10 diverse specialisations:
Additive Manufacturing Engineering
Civil Engineering (Infrastructure Systems)
Civil Engineering (Transport)
Civil Engineering (Water)
Renewable and Sustainable Energy Engineering
An intern can mean an extra pair of hands for a project, a leadership opportunity for your team, or the discovery of new talent for your organisation.
WIL PLACEMENT STUDENTS WILL
- Contribute vibrant and diverse perspectives, knowledge, analytical and research skills
- Explore solutions to complex, real-world problems
- Exercise critical thinking and professional judgement
- Show technical skill in designing, conducting and reporting on a research project
- Plan and execute a professional project with a degree of independence and accountability
Most importantly, Monash University students are flexible, talented, capable, enthusiastic, experienced and ready to work.
HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK?
Students complete a ‘recruitment’ process to develop employability skills, including interview techniques, soft skills and professional communication for the workplace. The WIL team screen and match applicants to opportunities. Student candidates are introduced to hosts and must pass face-to-face interviews before commencing their internships. Host organisations provide a project (approved by the academic coordinator), mentoring and supervision to interns.
Throughout the unit, we will request that you provide supervision to your WIL Engineering intern. Student interns are required to complete a project proposal, a reflection and a final report, and will also be supported by an academic supervisor.
Student interns are required to complete around 80-100 hours of work placement. This can be taken over the summer period (late November or January), the winter period (July) or over a semester (usually one day per week if during semester).
WIL internships are unpaid, though we welcome stipends to cover the students’ travel expenses. Monash University insurance covers students for the duration of the internship.
