Graduate and internship programmes to design a better future 

We need you to draw upon unconventional ideas and piece together solutions to complex challenges.

From designing a breakthrough solar-powered water treatment plant that provides drinking water to Indigenous and remote communities across Australia, to using digital technology to plan and restore safe transport access to communities in New Zealand after major landslips. To revitalising and transforming a Hong Kong historical landmark into a place of creativity and learning for generations to come.

Join us and together we’ll make an impact that shifts the world.

We were also honoured to win the AFR's Top 100 Graduate Employers ‘Most Popular Engineering and Resources Employer Award’ for the second year in a row, and made top 10 in the Top 100 Most Popular Graduate Employers list.
