    It depends if you're applying for a formal placement (as in they'll run the placement anyway, but it's potentially competitive to get a place). If you're doing that you should apply using whatever method they're asking for (there often will be an online application, but other methods are also used).
    If you've just found a company and want to get work experience from them then the best way would be to go to the actual company, hand in CV/contact details etc. and then follow up with an email so that they know you're serious about it and also so they actually remember to get back to you!
    Good luck!

    HR sounds sensible to me I don't know much about engineering companies though so not sure if there would be anyone better placed tbh
