Our work-integrated learning (WIL) initiatives relate to your course and, ultimately, your career goals. Whether for short or long-term work placements, it's a brilliant opportunity to work alongside professionals in your industry and get real-world experience. You can also choose to volunteer or study overseas as part of your course.
Our engineering students have access to some of the best future-focused engineering facilities in the Australian university sector within the Centre for Advanced Design in Engineering Training (CADET).
With access to real and virtual facilities including computer simulation, prototyping, testing and manufacturing, CADET allows students to realise and validate their designs.
The teaching-focused approach PODBL in CADET ensures that students have extensive access to state-of-the-art equipment and their application to real-world problems, enabling them to gain practical experience and a deeper understanding of their use.
Our programs aren't just research informed, they're genuinely research led. Deakin's a leader in numerous engineering-focused research areas. Coupled with our state-of-the-art facilities the experience you'll gain is second to none, with opportunities for research degrees or research careers in Australia and overseas.
We have extensive partnerships with industry to make sure that what we teach and research is both relevant and responsive to the changing needs of industry and the communities we work with.
We also receive input from industry through student placements, projects and our industry advisory group, which includes members from:
- Barwon Water
- SEW-Eurodrive Pty Ltd
- Air Radiators
- Norman Disney & Young
- Transport for Victoria.
