Resources and Support

Group of students participating in experiments

The ChallENG Program team are here to support you and your team. We have compiled a list of the key student resources and support below.

We also want you to know that you can always reach out to us if you need some extra guidance by emailing challeng@unsw.edu.au.

  • Have you ever been in one of our UNSW Makerspaces?

    Almost all of the projects within The ChallENG Program come to life in our Makerspace Network at UNSW Sydney! You have the opportunity to up-skill through workshop development training and digital badging credentialing. Click HERE to access the online hub of tutorials, information and classes on how to make, fabricate and create!

  • The ChallENG Program is here to support the growth of projects within the program and funding will be determined during the time that the project is approved.

    If your project received funding from The ChallENG Program, the UNSW Finance Policy applies and purchases will need to adhere to the purchasing requirements within the Faculty of Engineering.

    Please note that the funds can only be used for parts and materials in direct relation to building the project or travel costs for competitions. Funds are not given directly to students; they remain within a UNSW Faculty Project account.

    Funding from The ChallENG Program is limited each year so projects may have to consider securing other sources of funding such as grants, scholarships, sponsorships and donations.

  • If you are a project within the ChallENG Program, you may have access to project storage on campus from your Academic Advisor or designated school. Project storage space is limited on campus, but we will do our best to accommodate.

  • Special Consideration is available in some circumstances for students participating in projects. This needs to be completed before you register for courses, and it is up to the individual student to arrange this with their Academic Advisor for the project and the specific Course Lecturer beforehand. UNSW Special consideration procedures apply.

  • There are a lot of resources available to prepare for your travel via the UNSW Global webpage.

    Additionally, The ChallENG Program Team will work with you on these requirements of your specific project.

  • All students participating in teams are expected to comply with the UNSW Student Code of Conduct.

    The ChallENG Program reserves the right to modify, add policies, and hold students accountable for abiding by such policies. The University reserves the right to hold groups or individuals accountable for inappropriate actions not specifically listed in these standards.

  • If at any stage you feel unsafe or need to find support regarding an incident that may have occurred during your participation in a project, you can notify your Academic Advisor or The ChallENG Program team as soon as possible.

    Additionally, you can also visit student.unsw.edu.au/wellbeing.

  • You can refer to the following estate management page for working safety on campus: www.estate.unsw.edu.au/security/your-safety
