Engineering Graduates recognised

Our engineering cadetship program offers support for students studying engineering, including on the job experience through periods of vacation employment. The program enables participants to balance their studies with practical experience. It also provides them the opportunity to obtain jobs with us as civil engineering graduates in our development employee program, upon graduation.

Tyler Nygen and Clark Barrola were recognised with civil engineering awards from Curtin University for their efforts throughout 2021, while working with us as engineering cadets. Tyler (left) was awarded the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia Western Australia Inc. Award for Outstanding Performance in Fourth Year Civil Engineering Practices, Quality and Legislation. Clark (right) was awarded the Road Engineering Association of Asia and Australia Award for the Best Road and Traffic Engineering Research Project.

Since graduating and joining the Graduate Program, Tyler and Clark have gained valuable on-the-job experience working on projects such as Mitchell Freeway and Tonkin Gap.

Their technical and contractual knowledge has been enhanced, along with their professional working relationships with our contractors.

We are committed to developing the capabilities of our development employees through work rotations that provide practical experience and training tailored to their discipline.

We currently have 127 people on our Development Employee program which includes Engineering Associates, Engineering Cadets, Business and Science Graduates and Trainees. Each individual is unique and their journey will be encouraged and supported, and we cannot wait to watch them grow. Our programs are an excellent way to combine hands on professional development whilst they put into practice the qualifications you are working towards. Every year we search for enthusiastic creative students and graduates to join us in making WA a safe reliable place to live. Visit our webpage to find out more about Going Places with us.
