Frequently asked questions

What does an engineering intern do?

Engineering internships offer an incredible opportunity for students to gain practical knowledge and hands-on experience within their chosen field of study. Engineers are problem solvers, using maths and science to develop solutions to complex problems. They design, build, and test systems, products, and devices that meet human needs. Engineering is a technical field that requires a lot of practical experience. That's why engineering internships are so valuable, allowing students to apply what they've learned in the classroom to the real world. During an engineering internship, interns work under the supervision of experienced engineers. They learn the challenges of working in a professional setting, discover new technical skills, contribute to projects, and receive supervisor feedback.

Will an engineering internship get me a job?

The answer is yes. 1 in 3 of Readygrad's students is offered a job at the end of their placement. Engineering internships are a great way to gain experience in the field, but many people wonder if they lead to job opportunities. An engineering internship can increase the likelihood of getting hired. It allows you to apply the knowledge you've learned in the classroom to real-world situations and develop skills like problem-solving and communication. Additionally, internships will enable you to network with professionals in the industry and make valuable connections that could lead to job offers. Just remember to make the most of your internship experience by seeking out challenging assignments and taking the initiative to learn as much as possible. With dedication and hard work, an engineering internship can serve as a stepping stone to a successful career.

When should I start my engineering internship?

The earlier you start your internship, the more time you'll have to learn new things and explore different career paths. Typically, engineering internships begin during the summer months when many organisations need additional help. However, it's worth considering starting during the academic year if you can handle the workload. Readygrad provides internship opportunities fortnightly throughout the year. Ultimately, deciding when to begin your engineering internship will depend on your goals and schedule. Regardless of when you start, an engineering internship is an excellent way to gain valuable experience and make connections in the field.


Are engineering internships paid in Australia?

While there are no specific laws mandating payment for interns, the Fair Work Act outlines minimum wage standards. If an intern performs tasks that an employee would otherwise handle, they should receive compensation. Ultimately, the decision lies with the employer. However, it's always advisable to research and enquire about remuneration during the application process.

At Readygrad, we offer carefully curated unpaid internships that provide hands-on training in a genuine work environment. Even though you won't be considered an employee, you'll gain valuable skills and practical knowledge. We strive to ensure that your internship is impactful and equitable, with host companies committed to investing their time and resources to offer you a worthwhile learning experience. Discover more about our exciting internship program.

How can I get engineering experience with no experience?

If you're looking to break into the engineering industry but have yet to gain the chance to gain any relevant experience, don't worry - there are still ways to get your foot in the door. One option to consider is applying for an engineering internship. There are a range of internships available for individuals with varying levels of experience, so even if you are starting from scratch, there will likely be an opportunity out there that is suited to you. An internship will give you a chance to learn more about engineering and gain hands-on experience, and it can also help you build connections and relationships within the industry. Keep an eye out for open internship positions, and don't be afraid to apply - it could be the start of an exciting career in engineering!
