Vacation Program

> What we offer engineering students

Our Vacation Program offers the opportunity for engineering students to gain some practical workplace experience during their university summer vacation.

We aim to provide students with the opportunity to gain hands on experience and exposure to engineering opportunities available within the water industry.

Our program also provides students with the opportunity for professional and personal development through Operations, Water Quality and Infrastructure work areas, such as:

  • Assets and Operations
  • Contracts
  • Raw Water Supply
  • Concept Development
  • Water Quality Performance & Regulation
  • Infrastructure Delivery (Business as Usual)
  • Infrastructure Delivery (Projects).

The program duration is 12 weeks over the summer vacation period, commencing in the first week of December.

As part of our program students are given the opportunity to:

  • spend a week as part of the Headworks team, based at the Lauriston Reservoir (near Kyneton)
  • have a guided tour of one of our water reclamation plants and water treatment plants
  • spend a half day on a water and sewer truck.


> Other vacation opportunities

Our Vacation Program is primarily designed for engineering or engineering-related course students.

However, we also have opportunities available for non-engineering related students, dependent on business needs.

In previous Vacation Programs we have had students from Finance, Human Resources, Communications, and Environmental Science disciplines.

These opportunities will be advertised as detailed below.
