Here at the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering (SPREE) at UNSW we have a proud cohort of women on our teaching and research staff who are each hugely successful in their own right, and who are excited to welcome the next generation of women and nonbinary-identifying students looking to embark on their renewable energy engineering career with us, at all levels.
We pride ourselves at SPREE on our diverse and inclusive community, where women of all ages, from high school students all the way up to postgraduate, are encouraged and mentored in pursuit of their engineering career goals in renewable energy and sustainability. A career in our field is an opportunity to work on solving large-scale problems that have a tangible and meaningful impact on improving the planet for all of us. We’d love for you to join us!
There is an exciting scholarship opportunity from ATSE: Australian Academy of Technological Sciences & Engineering, available to all women and non-binary students who are looking to undertake a new course of tertiary study. The Elevate Program offers funding in three areas: for new undergraduate students, postgraduate research students working with industry, and for mid-career engineers looking to further develop their leadership skills.
The full criteria and eligibility can be found on the ATSE website where enquiries are welcome, with applications closing at 5:00pm AEST 31 August 2023. You can register here for an information session to be held on July 4.
We hope that you’ll choose SPREE as your place of tertiary study, where you’ll meet many other women to work alongside throughout your university career in renewable energy engineering. Here’s just a few of the outstanding women mentors who you’ll learn from and be guided by when you become a student with us at our Sydney campus:
