News & Events-Students secure Frazer-Nash internships against stiff competition


Two Australian university students will be spending the summer at Frazer-Nash Consultancy, gaining experience of working on complex engineering projects.

Deepika Phadke and Mitchell Colak secured the summer internships against stiff competition, following a tough assessment centre that included demanding group exercises and individual interviews. They will be working at Frazer-Nash from November 2016 to February 2017, developing their skills and experience on projects for the company's many industry clients.

Dr Anthony Kwong, a Principal Consultant in Frazer-Nash's Asset Performance Group, will be mentoring Deepika during her placement; while asset optimisation and project management expert, Harriet Floyd, will be sharing her expertise with Mitchell. Anthony said:

"Our interns are able to get involved in a variety of interesting projects, helping to provide solutions to our clients' challenging and complex issues. Deepika and Mitchell were selected from a final shortlist that had outstanding academic credentials, and we're looking forward to helping them put that knowledge into practice."

Deepika, who is studying for a degree in mechanical engineering at the University of Adelaide, will be based at Frazer Nash's Adelaide office, where she will be working with the Asset Performance Group. Mitchell, who is at the University of Sydney working towards a combined degree in mechanical engineering and commerce, will be with Frazer-Nash's asset optimisation and sustainment team at the company's Melbourne office.
