Seaforce provide engineering and sustainment support to a wide range of commercial, Government & defence operators and are looking for an enthusiastic engineering undergraduate to add to our expanding Canberra-based team.


This exciting role will give you the opportunity to elevate Seaforce's sustainment capability and will see you become the digital Subject Matter Expert (SME) for a fleet of patrol boats, ships and littoral craft. 



12 weeks

November 2022 - February 2023

As industrial plant and marine players accelerate digital transformation initiatives, focus remains on driving efficiency to stay profitable and competitive amidst complex challenges and eroded margins.

In the marine industry, increased regulation, aging assets, and high operational costs have led to challenging market conditions. Digital technologies, like the digital twin, are enabling marine operators to protect margins, automate manual processes, improve safety, and improve operational efficiency.

Updating existing vessel models and incorporating historic and live vessel maintenance data, Seaforce's undergraduate intern program will look at utilising a Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approach to a sustainment based Digital Twin model.

This Digital Twin will then be validated in the field by the Intern, gaining exposure to real-world, operational vessels in Northern Australia.

The ultimate aim of the digital twin is to create a virtual image of a vessel, capable of being maintained throughout it's lifecycle and easily accessible at any time. It will be a central part of our business and will enable a new generation of advanced predictive analytics.
