Internship Program

QinetiQ Australia's internship program is an opportunity for university students from a variety of disciplines to join us for an exciting 12 weeks from December through to February each year.

This year internships will be in our Canberra and Melbourne offices.

Interns are assigned a buddy throughout the program and have access to our leadership team and senior leaders from across the business for networking and support.

This program is all part of QinetiQ Australia’s commitment to encourage young people to pursue a career with us or in our industry.

Here is what some of last year’s interns said about the program:

“I had an amazing opportunity where I got to work through the entire lifecycle of my project – from conceptual design through to manufacture and testing. The workshop at Port Melbourne enabled me to use very interesting equipment such as the UV printer and the mini-CNC mill. Overall it was a great experience where I learned heaps and got the opportunity to work on real life projects that will contribute to industry.” – Sanjeev Ravindra

“I interned with the Military Helicopters team. The internship was a fantastic experience in that I got to experience and participate in the day to day operations of the company. I worked on real world projects involving current active ADF aircraft and got to communicate directly with the clients. Through these projects, I learned about the work involved in assuring the structural integrity and continuing airworthiness of various aerospace platforms. I have learned so much in such a short period of time and would highly recommend this internship program to anyone looking to gain some real world experience in the aerospace industry in Australia.” – Gurleen Malhans

“I was seamlessly welcomed into a working culture of talented employees and truly interesting people. QinetiQ is an organisation whose working culture I am proud to have been a part of. During my internship, this culture encouraged me to reach for ambitious goals and supported me in achieving them.

As an intern I was treated as a valuable contributing member of a team and felt as though I was making a tangible impact on real world engineering projects. QinetiQ allows their staff the opportunity to work on varying projects while diversifying their own skillsets along a planned career progression trajectory.” – Kit Kwok

Applications for the 2017/18 are now closed. Next year’s program will be available for consideration in May 2018.
