Third year university student Osama Rehman recently completed 12-weeks of hands-on experience at our Wetherill Park refinery under Cleanaway’s internship program. The industry placement was part of Osama’s Bachelor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (Honours) course at the University of Sydney.

In his time with us, Osama worked alongside Production Engineer Farid Dawood and his team, and learned about a host of real-world applications relating to his studies including hydrocarbon processing technology, operating plant and equipment, lab analysis, workshop maintenance, safety and environment, housekeeping and technical reporting. Osama even had the opportunity to get involved in plant shutdown and start up activities.

At the completion of his internship, Osama said, “I’m very thankful for the time and effort of everyone here at Cleanaway. The team at Wetherill Park generously dedicated their knowledge to help me gain valuable industry experience. Being a part of the team has allowed me to develop a better understanding of industrial operations as a student.”

With crucial learning experience under his belt, Osama now has a genuine link between his studies and real-world practices. Well done Osama, we look forward to hearing great things from you in the future.
