Ways of working with our students

Work placements, final year projects, apprenticeships and student employment.

Swinburne Sarawak students shine in whatever capacity you engage with them. There are two ways you can take advantage of our talented students and graduates.

Student internship

This is where our students are embedded with your organisation, just as if they were a member of your staff. It is a great way for your company to get support for long-term projects, give busy staff members extra support, or to help your organisation during high activity and growth. As a member of your team, the students put into practice the knowledge and skills they have acquired at university.

Company projects

Get additional support and skills as well as fresh perspectives to an issue by assigning a project to our students. This is an ideal way for your organisation to tackle short-term projects. Working with students also allow companies to identify potential long-term employees. Some of the projects our students have been undertaken include those with not-for-profit organisations such as building homes and recreational facilities for the underprivileged and needy.

Benefits of working with our students

Each year, companies across Malaysia and overseas benefit by working with Swinburne Sarawak students. Our students bring new perspectives, talent and enthusiasm to your business. They quickly can become an invaluable part of your team, or an essential member of your short-term project.

Work placements also provide your organisation with an excellent way to discover graduate talent. Many organisations offer students permanent positions after graduation and find placements a convenient way to find graduate recruits.
