"Our company, being of German origin, has always benefitted from that country’s strong integration between the education system and industry. Student placements are an integral and highly-valued part of the industrial landscape.
In Australia, Siemens has partnered with Swinburne for over 10 years and in that time we’ve hosted over 25 information technology students on placement.
We have a preference for Swinburne students and have found that their strong technical capacity combined with well-developed communication skills makes them successful in roles including software development, project management and business analysis.
Our team has benefited from the injection of new talent with fresh eyes and a real eagerness to succeed.
Swinburne’s placement program benefits the student through guided learning and it benefits Siemens through unparalleled access to a regular flow of high quality IT students. Our students add real value on placement and often continue with us as graduates."
