Are you heading into Year 10, 11 or 12 for 2017? Interested in maths and science? Are you of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent?
If you answered yes to these questions … why not apply for the 2017 Indigenous Australian Engineering Summer School (IAESS)!
Straight off the bat – everything is free, including travel costs to and from Sydney, meals and accomodation. All you need to do is discover the amazingness of engineering.
Engineers are vital to the growth and sustainability of our communities – they design and advise on water, mining, agriculture, power, roads, hospitals, schools and communication networks. The engineering profession needs more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to lead infrastructure projects.
During the IAESS Summer School, you’ll get to live on campus at The University of Sydney for six days, get a taste of university life, and gain a better understanding of engineering as a course and career.
You’ll take part in various activities and go on site visits to engineering companies, where you’ll learn about about the work they do and the diverse careers on offer.
IAESS 2017 is running from 8-14 January 2017.
Organisers are looking for 20 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, male and female, who will be entering years 10, 11 or 12 in 2017.
Applications close 14 October 2016.
