Fire Safety Engineering – Research Internship

The Warren Centre is seeking a student intern to work on an exciting new project on Fire Safety Engineering, an important issue in the built environment. After the Grenfell Fire in London, Australia has begun the process of ascertaining whether similar fire risks exist here due to poor decisions in building developments. This is a major project to examine the issues of regulation, control and professionalism in the field of fire safety. This independent, world first research will sit alongside current government enquiries and other more material focussed research. The outcomes from the project will encourage innovation and improve fire safety outcomes in new and existing buildings and infrastructure across Australia.

This internship may count towards your 12 week Industry Experience requirement.

The internship will provide valuable skills in exploring how fire safety engineering is applied in industry and the compliance requirements of different jurisdictions. In addition the intern will gain insights from:

  • How to operate independently, and as part of a larger team
  • How to effectively research, edit and produce relevant engineering reports
  • The scope and necessity of fire safety engineering within modern construction projects
  • Professional engineering terminology and practices

You will be supervised by a chartered engineer and the Executive Director who will provide direction on the internship and research tasks required during this period.


  • Current University Student in engineering
  • Degrees in either: Civil Engineering or Mechanical Engineering are preferred but other engineering disciplines or architecture are also encouraged to apply.
  • Availability: The internship is approximately 6 to 10 hours per week under a flexible arrangement to accommodate exams and assignments.

This position may cover the necessary hours for Industry Experience Engagement for engineering degrees.

Please apply by 2 April 2018 quoting reference FIRESAFE18. Apply now
