Every year Engenium take on undergraduate engineering students during their summer break. This year we have four intern’s joining us - Pinakshi Chowdhury, Jazlyn Peattie, Sithu Win Than and Jason Ross.

Here at Engenium we do everything we can to encourage students to take up a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) career pathway in the mining equipment, technology and services sector (METS).

According to Business Insider the proportion of Australia’s population aged 20 to 64 with post-school qualifications in STEM has fallen in the last decade, from 46% for men and 10% for females in 2008 to 43% for men and 9% for females in 2018.

Austmine recognise this trend and together with METS Ignited they are working to increase the number of students seeking a career in the METS sector, through their STEM METS Career Pathway Program.

Both Pinakshi Chowdhury and Sithu Win Than join us through this program, which is an opportunity for students to gain first-hand experience of the METS sector through a paid 10 week internship with a METS company during their summer break.

Jazlyn Peattie and Jason Ross come to us directly from the University they are studying at and join Engenium’s own Vacation Program.

The Vacation Program is a 10-12 week program running from November through to January, where third and fourth year students are given the opportunity to gain practical experience in three key areas of the company – Engineering, Project Controls and Project Management.

Welcome to all our intern’s. We hope you enjoy working at Engenium as much as we do.
