Murdoch University and BHP Billiton Worsley Alumina have a long standing relationship, in which a selection of students in their final year of engineering study have the opportunity to complete a six month internship program at the Alumina refinery situated near Collie, Western Australia. The internship program allows the student to partake in a number of engineering projects, providing the student with invaluable experience, as well as the opportunity to develop both personally and professionally. This report details the projects in which the intern was involved during his time at BHP Billiton Worsley Alumina, and includes the following:

• FieldBus Training System
• HMI Design for Condensate Polishing Plant Trains
• Control Loop tuning through TuneWizard Software
• Powerhouse BMS/SCADA Database Update Project
• C200 SIIOP Control Module reprogramming and Interlock Plan
• Uticor Display and HMI development

Additionally this report will confirm the benefits of the internship program at BHP Billiton Worsley Alumina, which has not only been an exceptional learning experience for the intern, but has also given him a significant base on which to build his professional engineering career.
