RMIT's International Industry Experience and Research Program (RIIERP) offers you the chance to do a paid internship with global companies and businesses in Europe, Asia and the USA.
RIIERP is the only program of its kind in Australia. Since 1992, we’ve placed more than 1800 students in six to 12-month paid internships at some of the world’s best-practice companies such as Airbus, EADS, Bentley Motors, the Siemens Group, Nestlé, Robert Bosch, Volkswagen, BMW and the Rolls-Royce group and more.
Your international industry experience will introduce you to different cultures and working environments. As a RIIERP intern you’ll develop your professional and research skills and learn from renowned leaders while working on industry and client projects.
Undergraduate and postgraduate students completing coursework or research programs can apply.
What projects do I complete?
During your internship you are supervised by industry professionals and complete projects matched to your skills and the requirements of your host company.
Previous students have contributed to diverse industry projects and research, including working on a F136 jet engine program for the Joint Strike Fighter Aircraft at Rolls-Royce, Indianapolis, USA, or completing laboratory experiments for the international space station at EADS Space Transportation, Friedrichshafen, Germany.
