Defence Industry Internship Program

Aimed at engineering students studying at Universities all around Australia that are in their last or second last years of study, DIIP is an opportunity to gain practical engineering experience at a Small or Medium Enterprise (SME) that supports the Defence Industry in Australia.

You’ll see a diverse range of internships on offer this year

Working with PHM Technology has been a great experience for me. I learnt a lot about how important reliability and maintainability are in the defence industry. I would love to give my thanks to the DIIP team for organising this placement and giving me the opportunity to develop my engineering skills. Emily Lok

We have electrical and electronic engineers, some of whom are working on the latest high tech surveillance equipment.  We have aeronautical and aerospace internships where students get to work on advanced rocketry and space programs sometimes involving satellites and drones. There are numerous mechatronic opportunities and many mechanical, civil, chemical and software opportunities on offer, all of which involve using innovative technology and equipment that many students simply don’t have exposure to at University.

How to Apply

Applications each year commence from mid-June through to July with the internships running for 12 weeks commencing around November/December and finishing in February/March the following year.

Applications close Sunday 1 August 2021.
