Seven Australian university students will get enhanced experience in electrical and mechanical engineering under a new agreement signed with a major naval equipment provider that has been chosen as a partner for project SEA 1000.

Under the agreement, Jeumont Electric will receive seven engineering students from the University of Adelaide for six-month internships to reinforce their knowledge and experience of electrical and mechanical engineering in an advanced industrial context. Topics covered will include monitoring (data acquisition and processing for predictive maintenance), machine modelling and simulation algorithms.

Jeumont Electric said, under this agreement, the company is demonstrating its determination to participate in a long-term engagement between Australia and France in basic research across long-term programs in the marine sector, as well as other sectors such as renewable energies. 

"We are honoured to enter this agreement with the University of Adelaide, which has an undisputed strong reputation in research,” said Brahim Ammar, president of Jeumont Electric.

"The students we will receive will be able to work with us on topics of research applied to industrial problems. This is an essential advance for the future, and the first step of a durable partnership."

The University of Adelaide said this agreement presents students with an opportunity to launch a successful career in the advanced technological, industrial and defence sectors in Australia.

"We are delighted to enter a partnership with a leading company of longstanding reputation internationally, and support the translation of our research into projects of international technical and economic significance," said Professor Julie Owens, acting deputy vice-chancellor research at the University of Adelaide.

"From our students’ perspective, an internship with Jeumont Electric presents a unique opportunity to launch a career in some of Australia’s most vibrant sectors in a global context.

"In addition to the substantial practical knowledge to be gained through this internship, the significant international experience will also provide a clear advantage in a job market due to grow considerably over the next decade."
