Following the success of the current industrial internship program, which saw four interns partnered with industry clients to accomplish short term nanofabrication projects, MCN is now seeking expressions of interest from industry partners and interns for participation in this year’s Fabrication Internship Program. This iteration of the program aims to assist our industry clients in meeting engineering challenges with specific alignment to MCN’s core fabrication facilities, whilst also providing valuable work experience for program interns.

Key features of the program include MCN covering the cost of a full-time intern for industry partners in the program, while participants are also able to enjoy a 50% discount on all MCN instrumentation, including the staff time required for intern training, for the length of the project. Partners will retain all IP input and output from the project deliverables and will be able to select interns from a pool of highly capable bachelors and master engineering and physics interns.

Interns will benefit professionally from the project leadership experience and will have the opportunity to work with some exciting companies at the forefront of nanofabrication development. They will develop their own skill sets through direct technical and operation support from MCN staff and industry partners and will be involved in real-life projects which hold great impact for Victoria’s fabrication and engineering economies.

MCN is seeking expressions of interest from industry partners as well as intern candidates from May 2015. The program is due to start in July 2015. 

Students who are eligible to work in Australia and who are interested in applying for the program should send their CV and a cover letter outlining their skills and experience to
