IICA offers students work experience

A new initiative of the IICA Sydney Branch is the IICA Student Award Work Experience Program.

Each year, the IICA Sydney Branch awards two to five awards to University of Technology (UTS) and Petersham TAFE.

In previous years, the UTS award included $500 to two students and the TAFE award included a multimeter and the CD looping text book and CD.

Now, to complement the prize, the students who win will be offered their choice of a few days company work experience at the following companies that have offered to participate: Burkert Fluid Control Systems, Emerson Process Management, Weidmuller Australia, Qenos and Schneider Electric.

This initiative began in October when the UTS prizes were awarded to Andrew Wilkinson and Robert Alcaro who gained the highest aggregate mark in the subjects Dynamics and Control and Introductory Control respectively.

Robert has chosen to attend Schneider Electric as he has a particular interest in Schneider’s MV switchgear/ transformers and the associated control and protection relays.

Companies wishing to be part of this new initiative may contact Julie Meynell on for more information.
