Shaping the development of a new engineering degree

Partnering with Swinburne University to better equip students

Henkel Australia offers opportunities for university students to experience its culture and work practices by participating in its internship program.

Nicole Trosky, Head of Human Resources ANZ, said the process of interviewing for recent intern positions has highlighted the need to collaborate and partner with universities to try and influence the curriculum of engineering degrees and better prepare students for work at Henkel.

“At Henkel ANZ, we want to be part of the education pathway to ensure future graduates are equipped with all the knowledge and skills they need to succeed. Recently, we observed that non-traditional mechanical fastening methods, such as the technologies that have been developed by Henkel’s Adhesive Technologies business unit, are not being taught as part of a traditional engineering degree. We are now participating in the development of a new and innovative undergraduate engineering degree that will run from next year, alongside the existing engineering degrees offered by Swinburne University,” said Nicole.
