"At City of Yarra we constantly look to attract new and innovative talent by providing support, guidance and career development within a diverse and inclusive cultural environment.
The Swinburne Professional Placement program has been a real success at the City Of Yarra. This is the second year of the program which has received excellent feedback from past students and our organisation."
Coordinator of Construction Development for City of Yarra, Peter Moran.
Each year we recruit three highly motivated, enthusiastic and diligent student civil engineers who want to challenge themselves in real engineering roles. Students are given support and guidance from team members and their assigned mentor. The students are accountable and responsible for designing/reviewing/auditing/reporting/inspecting in relation to associated operational engineering works and projects.
What really sets us apart from other industry placements is our rotation program, where each student spends four months before rotating in the following teams; Civil Works Team, Contract Management and Projects Team, and Traffic and Civil Engineering Team. During the program students will build confidence, experience and ability in the following areas:
- project management
- engineering design & solutions
- construction management
- contract management.
