The Opportunity

The TasWater Summer Placement Program is a 12-week program where students gain exposure and work experience in the unique water and wastewater industry.

You'll actively work with our Risk and Resilience Team on reviewing and improving our risk tools, and incident management framework. You'll have a dedicated mentor and make invaluable industry contacts.

The Summer Placement Program is a great first step to a career at TasWater - former student Pei shares her experience below:

Peizhe Ma, Operations Systems Planner

I came to UTAS from Zhengzhou in northern China. The Summer Placement Program has been an invaluable experience for me. I gained significant hands-on experience at such a big water utility company. I had the opportunity to visit various assets and observe their operations, including water treatment plants and sewer treatment plants. I also had the opportunity to develop my own program, known as the Database Checker Tool, to enhance support for both the business and our community.

I currently work as an Operations Systems Planner in the Operational Planning Team. My team was initially to act as a support function for the Operations Centre (OC) and operators. Some examples include providing software and technical support for OCs, incident investigation and management, and more. My current primary projects involve SCADA auditing to identify statewide headend SCADA system interface-related issues and SCADA alarm rationalization to reduce the number of after-hours alarms.
