Two students have been awarded inaugural Port Environment management internships as part of a long-term environmental monitoring and research program run by North Queensland Bulk Ports and James Cook University. The students will spend four weeks immersed in field activities spanning both industry and academia.
The program is a significant example of real-world science application, and how corporations can support the education of the future generation.
Ports across Australia are offering these rare opportunities for students to gain real-world experience tackling marine coastal management challenges. Future marine challenges in port management will require applied experience and industry-ready leaders. As the only port authority in the world to operate three priority ports in a world heritage area, the internship is a rare opportunity for students to develop a unique skill set and crucial to securing the future sustainability of the reef and Ports.
