The Defence Engineering Internship Program (DEIP) is designed to improve defence industry’s skills base, create pathways into the defence industry sector and address capability skills gaps. It is an excitng initative that provides engineering students with an incentivised opportunity to gain experience in one of the most technologically innovative and dynamic industries available in Australia.
OPEC Systems Northern Territory was delighted to give Keiren Muir an internship and we were very happy with his progress, adaptability and eagerness to learn. Keiren was able to integrate his theoretical knowledge with practical application.
According to Keiren, his internship was invaluable especially in gaining insight to the overall management of a contract. Prior to the DEIP experience, Keiren had not fully appreciated the importance of record keeping in demonstrating adherence to contract deliverables including financial obligations.

Force and our pioneering Small to Medium Enterprises offer a diversity of opportunites for fulfilling careers
that are second-to-none for both new and experienced engineers.’ DEIP member
