THE UNDERGRADUATE EXPERIENCE THAT MATTERS
Fenner Dunlop ACE in Mackay is always looking out for the next generation of expert Engineers. The team is committed to assisting the new entrants to succeed, offering multiple programs designed to advance and enhance the holistic work experience.
Combining theoretical tutoring with practical activities is by far, the most effective way of learning. “We work together with our customers to offer our undergraduates practical experience working on real-world projects” explains Mark Wilcock, Branch Manager ACE QLD. Two employees stand out from the crowd in the team, both started with ACE in their second year of university studies and now are key personnel in our business.
Cameron Slack Spent the last 4 years working as an undergraduate, giving him a new perspective on the world of engineering. “Looking at everything holistically, being able to get a sort of top-down view of the mining industry, but also the outlook of the entire business has been great”. Cameron just finished his last exams and now runs the pulley overhaul and manufacturing division of ACE QLD.
Joel Hingst says that Fenner Dunlop ACE helped him with networking, but that the value of the experience goes well beyond. “The high-calibre employees you get to work with is incredible. The perspective that you get is extremely important for people starting their career. I don’t want to work for an organisation that’s just a bunch of plain, cookie-cutter people who do the same thing every day. Meaningful work is critical to me”. Joel has been working in the Mackay branch for over 5 years, now fully graduated he leads major conveyor design projects for our key customers.
At the Fenner Dunlop ACE undergraduate program, entrants will build practical skills as complete engineers while providing a real contribution to the success of the Australian mining industry. The Mackay branch is open to applications, a unique opportunity to kickstart a great career.
