Engineering Summer School
Fully residential program: Monday 5 – Friday 10 December 2021
The Engineering Summer School is supported by Honeywell and the Office of the NSW Chief Scientist & Engineer. It is a collaboration between Engineers Australia, Sydney’s leading Engineering Universities, Rotary Clubs and key Engineering organisations. The objective is to give high school students a better understanding of what engineering is and how it works in everyday life.
The Engineering Summer School will bring together 100 Year 11 Students from Regional NSW and Sydney Metropolitan Area and who are facing choices which will influence their future careers. It is a residential school with students accommodated on campus.
Engineers cultivate creative, enquiring minds, a strong interest in mathematics, science and the environment, and want to contribute to improving the quality of life for everyone. Within each engineering discipline, there are many career paths from management to research and teaching, from construction and maintenance to sales and marketing. Engineering is a prestigious profession and is essential for a nation’s future development, creating wealth and employment which increases living standards throughout our societies.
Throughout the program, the students will meet and interact with professional engineers employed by government, private companies, researchers and academics in a wide range of engineering disciplines. The students will attend lectures/demonstrations at participating NSW universities and participate in industrial visits, providing students with the opportunity to see the different engineering disciplines at work.
Students visit some of the following universities during The Engineering Summer School:
- University of NSW
- University of Technology, Sydney
- University of Wollongong
- University of Sydney
- Macquarie University
In addition, the students will visit four engineering sites (site tours) and attend a careers event with engineering professionals, providing the students with the ability to ask an engineer questions to assist them in their future studies.
