Employer: Maribyrnong City Council

Mary Dallas, Manager of Civil Design & Transport at Maribyrnong City Council, says VU graduates have a great work ethic and solid technical skills.

"Industry experience is vital in giving students a first-hand appreciation of opportunities in various sectors, and it assists them in identifying and pursuing a career path that best aligns with their technical and personal attributes.

We have taken on a number of graduates who previously completed their 12 weeks of industry-learning with Maribyrnong City Council.

The VU graduates that we have employed have displayed a good work ethic and a genuine interest in local government engineering, with a focus on customer service. They have an eye for detail and solid technical skills."
