WELCOME Welcome to the 2014 CHEMS and AUES Joint Engineering Industry Night. It is great to see that you are here and are being proactive towards securing vacation or graduate employment. It is a unique opportunity to meet not only the human resources representatives that will likely be hiring you, but also real life engineers to give you insight into your future career. Ask plenty of questions about the culture of the firm and what your potential future role would entail; this will be invaluable if you later get an interview with that company. This booklet is your bible for the evening and contains important information about the companies here tonight. Use it to prioritise your time and decide which companies you are most interested in. Read the background information to get some conversation starters. Finally ensure you make a good first impression, as they will stick - so be well mannered, while remaining sensible at the bar. We hope that you have an enjoyable and informative evening and wish you the best of luck with your employment search this year. Tom Merrett CHEMS President

Hayden Gale AUES President

Australian Defence Force The Australian Defence Force (ADF) is the military organisation responsible for the defence of Australia. It consists of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), Australian Army, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and a number of 'tri-service' units. The ADF has strength of just over 80,000 full-time personnel and active reservists, and is supported by the Department of Defence and several other civilian agencies. During the first decades of the 20th century, the Australian Government established the armed services as separate organisations. Each service had an independent chain of command. In 1976, the government made a strategic change and established the ADF to place the services under a single headquarters. Over time, the degree of integration has increased and tri-service headquarters, logistics and training institutions have supplanted many single-service establishments. The ADF is technologically sophisticated but relatively small. Although the ADF's 57,994 full-time active-duty personnel, 22,072 active reserves and 22,166 standby reserves make it the largest military in Oceania, it is still smaller than most Asian militaries. Nonetheless, the ADF is supported by a significant budget by worldwide standards and is able to deploy forces in multiple locations outside Australia.
