Networking and engaging with industry are an important part of the UWA experience and as an engineering student you will participate in courses that are developed in close consultation with industry and the wider community.
You will regularly work with industry representatives, ensuring that you have access to technical expertise, gain understanding and experience of professional engineering, and acquire a diverse set of skills. It will also help to ease your transition from student to graduate, and make you an attractive candidate for employment.
A prime example of UWA’s close industry links is the Co-operative Education for Enterprise Development (CEED) program. Since 1989, CEED has enhanced the student research experience at UWA by linking student with the research and development needs of progressive organisations and industry partners.
Both undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students at UWA have the opportunity to participate in a CEED project, gaining valuable work experience, enhancing employment prospects, and working on a topic with immediate application in the wider community.
High profile collaborations and research projects between UWA and engineering companies such as Apache, BHP, Chevron, Clough, Monadelphous, Rio Tinto and Woodside present you with a range of other opportunities, such as vacation work and graduate careers.
These relationships have also enabled the creation of purpose-specific engineering study facilities such as the Monadelphous Integrated Learning Centre, a world-class teaching and practical learning space, and the Clough Engineering Student Centre, a modern base for study and social anchor for students studying with the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics.
