Be inspired to explore a career in engineering

An important part of the Women in Engineering program is raising the awareness of engineering as a potential career option for young women. We want to shatter the perception that engineering is a profession for men involving hard hats, physical labour and heavy machinery. Engineering is an extraordinarily diverse field and UNSW has an illustrious history of women graduates making impact in the areas of medical science, environmental stewardship, world health and energy innovation. These engineers require lateral thinking, creativity, problem-solving and management skills.

Discover our Young Women in Engineering club at UNSW, an inspiring community for high school students who are interested in STEM careers, studying maths or science or want to explore what engineering is all about.
