Our Summer Industry Experience internship program is open to Mathematics, Statistics and Physics students, and host organisations.

The annual program offers students the chance to engage in an internship with one of our industry partners, where they will experience industrial work in an authentic workplace situation.

Host organisations can, in turn, tap into our pool of talented students and collaborate with them as interns as they contribute to company projects.

The program runs for six to eight weeks over December and January.

How to apply


Applications for specific internships will be open to eligible Mathematics, Physics and Statistics students following an Expression of Interest process. Interested students must submit the expression of interest form in order to gain access to the available projects

Projects will be advertised to eligible students from Monday 27th August.

Following the application process, interviews with industry partners will take place during October.  If successful, most internships will start in December, on a date negotiated with the host organisation, and finish in January or February 2019.  Successful students will receive a scholarship of $360 per week paid at the end of each 4 week block. Bachelor students may apply to enrol in SCIE3255 over summer semester to gain course credit for the internship.
