Since its inception over 20 years ago, AITEC has demonstrated a strong capability to manage the delivery of complex education, training and workforce development projects and programs in Australia and overseas.

Some of the programs for which AITEC has been responsible include:

Defence Engineering Internship Program (DEIP)

The Defence Engineering Internship Partnership Program is an initiative of the Australian Government represented by the Department of Defence.

It is an exciting initiative that provides Australian defence Small to Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) with the opportunity to market defence industry as an innovative, interesting and viable career path to engineering students.

Through the Program, high performing 3rd and 4th year (or equivalent) engineering students undertake a sponsored 12-week work placement in one of the firms.

From 2012 to 2015, DEIP has paired 30 selected engineering students each year with defence industry SMEs from around Australia with outstanding results. The national Program will continue in 2016 with internships for another 30 engineering students.
