It takes a global understanding of the issues to solve the world’s most challenging problems. Engineering and technology interns can truly benefit from cultural exchange with professionals from other parts of the world who take a different approach and offer a unique perspective. Expertise in the science and technology sectors is increasingly crucial as the working world goes almost entirely online. An internship that combines remote work experience with an international component is a valuable addition to your resume and a priceless opportunity to build your global professional network.
Our experienced advisors will work with you to arrange a customized virtual internship that matches your interests and goals. Here are some examples of possible remote placements within Engineering and Technology:

BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING - virtual
Sydney-based research center seeking an intern proficient in Matlab and interested in biomedical image analysis to investigate corneal limbal stem cell dysfunction in contact lens wearers.
Contact lens (CL) wear has been recently recognised as a cause of failure of the stem cells of the eye’s surface. Poor vision and ocular discomfort follow ocular surface (limbal) stem cell failure. This project will examine contact lens wearers for dysfunction of limbal stem cells or damage to their specialised ‘niche’ environment. With the increasing prevalence of contact lens wear and the use of contact lenses for stem cell replacement therapies, investigation of stem cell damage with contact lens wear has the potential to save sight, improve contact lens design and optimise stem cell replacement therapies.
This study will assess a group of CL wearers in parallel with a group of non-lens wearing healthy ‘negative’ controls to investigate changes that may suggest limbal stem cell dysfunction. Specialised imaging techniques will be used, and anatomical patterns will be compared to the reported signs in established limbal stem cell deficiency.
Preferred duration 12+ weeks.
