Short-term placement opportunities are now available with AARNet, giving students insight into the telecommunications industry and how AARNet operates a national research and education network.
AARNet offers three programs for students to participate in based on the resources available at AARNet offices in each state. Students can also choose to do multiple programs at an office in a single placement. Most work experience placements will be 5-10 days, depending on which workstream or combination of workstreams students choose to participate in.
The Maintain Workstream focuses on network overview and management tools, components of the network and a data centre tour with the AARNet Operations Team. Students can participate in the Maintain Workstream at AARNet’s Brisbane, Perth or Sydney offices.
The Protect Workstream provides an insight into cyber security attacks and risks that institutions face, along with hands-on experience using real-time data with the AARNet Security Operations Centre team. Students can participate in the Protect Workstream at AARNet’s Brisbane or Melbourne offices.
