  • Ensuring that plant designs are efficient and fit-for-purpose.
  • Ensuring that Maintenance and Operations teams are provided with effective advice and support.
  • Gaining knowledge of separation processes, reaction engineering, particle process engineering and process control.

Civil Engineering

From safe drinking water to transport systems, and developing bridges to responding to natural disasters, civil engineers make a massive impact on the world we live in and our quality of life. Civil Engineering as a discipline deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. During a Civil Engineering internship, you may be involved with:

  • Monitoring and recording aspects of construction based on time, cost, quality and safety.
  • Modelling tasks under the supervision of an experienced engineer.
  • Site visits while projects are under construction.
  • Attending relevant project meetings and writing briefs and project reports.

Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering deals with the study and application of electricity and electronics. An Electrical Engineering internship will enhance your knowledge in electronic components and electrical systems, as well as circuit theory, analysis and design. An intern might also be asked to:

  • Carry out PLC Programming.
  • Make up designs, drawings and proposals.
  • Carry out electrical testing.
  • Design and model tasks under the supervision of an engineer.
  • Get involved in site visits.
  • Attend relevant project meetings.

Electromechanical Engineering

An Electromechanical Engineering internship combines some of the concepts involved with Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, and refers to the analysis, design, manufacture and maintenance of equipment and products based on the combination of electrical circuits and mechanical systems. An intern may be asked to:

  • Design or assist with work on a prototype device.
  • Work on devices in the fields of Pediatrics, Spinal Injuries, Autism or Stroke Rehabilitation.

Environmental Engineering

​Environmental Engineering is concerned with waste water management, air pollution control, recycling, waste disposal, radiation protection, industrial hygiene, environmental sustainability, public health and environmental engineering law. During an Environmental Engineering internship, an intern may be asked to:

  • Assist in the collection of data, for example, from field surveys.
