DaRa Switchboards’ Mission to Support Young Engineers

We offer a comprehensive internship program for upcoming engineers in Australia. Over 150 students have already completed their in-plant training in the past.

Decades ago, government organisations were the major employers of engineering students via internships and graduate programs. This, however, has dropped due to privatisation of most of these organisations over these years and cost-cutting drives that have occurred over many years in these organisations that led to a short-term focus.

With the change in the landscape of organisations in Australia, private organisations, industry, and members of Engineers Australia have a great responsibility in providing the much-needed hands-on experience that enables the young guns to gain their skills and face the industry with confidence when they obtain their degrees.

We believe that strong technical and hands-on experience together with confidence in these young engineers is vital for the industry and therefore the internship program is structured with much-needed workshop skills together with design, engineering and project management skills.

Interns are selected for our internship program through Engineers Australia programs such as professional year program conducted by organisations like Swinburne, Performance Education, Holmesglen etc.

Young engineers also join this program to complete their mandatory 12 weeks internship through leading universities in Melbourne like RMIT, Monash, Swinburn, Deakin, Victoria etc and, university vacation/part-time internships from all over Australia.
