The CBE Internship program provides students with an opportunity to gain real-world experience through a workplace project of 120 hours (for 6 units) or 240 hours (for 12 units), approximately 12 or 24 hours per week over 10 weeks. The program also includes 5 practical workshops throughout the semester to prepare students for their internships and future careers.  

The internship project has a strong focus on developing students’ employability in terms of their teamwork, communication and problem-solving skills. Each intern will show evidence of competencies and skills acquired through close working relationships and collaboration with professional colleagues, a workplace supervisor and academic advisor. Every individual intern will be supported by the CBE Careers and Student Employability team including Course Convenor, Tutor, Career consultants, and Program Coordinator. 

The internship program also offers industry collaborators the opportunity to co-create value through students’ application of their theoretical knowledge and capabilities developed throughout their programs and get access to ANU talents.
