Work experience and internships

Boost your career trajectory by undertaking a formal work experience or internship program with BAE Systems Australia.
We offer opportunities for high school and university students to spend time immersed in our business and involved in hands-on STEM-related activities.

High school work experience - Year 10

We offer unpaid work experience for Year 10 school students both in-person and online. Students work in teams on a project to develop, operate and maintain a virtual amusement park. 
Under guidance from engineering and project management teams, the students work through a number of training modules including digital design, 3D printing, workplace safety and electronics construction. 
This program provides students with experience in coordinating a project and showcases what STEM skills are needed to create a roller-coaster for a hypothetical business unit.  
We offer two pathways to participate: Face-to-face over 4-5 days; or via online over 3 days. Both program styles are available at various sites and times throughout the year.

University internship program

We offer internships for undergraduate university students who are in their penultimate (second to last year) of study.
Paid internships with us usually run for 12 weeks over summer from mid-November to mid-February to align with university breaks.
Our internship program will provide you with the opportunity to explore your chosen field and learn what skills, capability, experience and knowledge are required to be successful in this area.
We have also teamed up with not-for-profit organisation Career Trackers to provide internships for ten First Nations university students each year.
