Graduate Program


Our Graduates are our future - develop your future with us!
For sheer diversity of clients and projects, DCE is hard to beat. Working within the fields of Urban Development, Urban Infrastructure and Sport, DCE is an industry leader in providing our clients with outstanding, sustainable solutions and our people with challenging, rewarding careers.

About our Graduate Roles & Engineering Development Program
We believe that our engineers should gain a strong design base before moving to other areas of the business, as this leads to higher performing, more well-rounded engineers. As a Graduate Engineer you will gain insight into all areas of the firm, from design to construction and project management, but your initial role will be strongly design focussed, with room to progress into other areas of interest as you progress your career.

About you
As well as gaining a strong foundation of knowledge and graduate pathways on which to build your career, you will also benefit from being part of a people-focused firm. We strive to create an environment in which people can flourish. Working at DCE you will enjoy the following benefits:
• Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
• Engineers Australia Partnership for Chartership
• Engineering Development Program (Internal)
• Flexible working arrangements
• Paid Parental leave
• Employee referral bonus
• Graduate pathway
• Milestone celebrations
