CS Energy recently welcomed five undergraduate engineers to our summer undergraduate program – (pictured from left below) Sam Griffin, Majella Cassidy, Qasim Khan Baba, Rani Stephensen and Yousif Al-Patti.
Yousif is currently studying a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Software Engineering) and Master of Engineering at UQ. In his studies, Yousif is particularly interested in software, electronics and embedded systems, which he is looking forward to applying in CS Energy’s Asset Management division.
Fellow UQ student Qasim Khan Baba is studying a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) majoring in Software Engineering and will be working in our IT team.
QUT electrical engineering and business management student Rani Stephensen is no stranger to CS Energy, as she was a recipient of our QUT Learning Potential Fund Scholarship in 2019. Rani and Sam Griffin, who is a UQ mechanical engineering and accounting student, are also working in CS Energy’s Asset Management division.
In a case of good timing, Rani and Sam gained a first-hand insight into equipment testing less than one week into their internship when they accompanied senior engineers to Sulzer’s Brisbane workshop.
Sulzer have been repairing Callide Power Station’s Unit C4 electric feed pump motor. Rani and Sam toured the Sulzer workshop and saw the motor rewinding process up close (photo below).
Rounding out the five interns is UQ mechanical engineering student Majella Cassidy, who has returned to CS Energy for her second summer placement and is working in the boiler team in the Asset Management division.
The undergraduates will work on various projects for CS Energy over the summer period, gaining valuable experience in their fields of study.
CS Energy sources our undergraduates from a number places, including our scholarship program, advertising, partnerships with universities and our new partnership with CareerSeekers, a not for profit organisation that works with companies to provide work for refugees and asylum seekers.
Our summer undergraduate program provides a pipeline of talent for our graduate program.
