Futures in Engineering

Do you like working in a team to solve problems?

Do you enjoy studying Maths and Science? Do you know how engineering positively supports our community?

If you're in years 10, 11 and 12 in Tasmania and are interested in seeing what an engineering career actually involves, the 2022 Futures in Engineering program is for you. It provides an authentic engineering experience through an opportunity to interact with engineering professionals and academics across a range of interesting activities and projects.

This full-day program includes:

  • Tours of the engineering facilities and labs at the University of Tasmania and Australian Maritime College
  • Fun and interactive group activities demonstrating the key skills required by engineers
  • Opportunities to meet engineers currently working in the industry; and
  • A variety of short presentations from industry and academics demonstrating what engineering is, what engineers do, how to become an engineer, and where engineering can take you!

The Futures in Engineering program is a joint collaboration, originally initiated through the Guaranteeing Futures Program within the Tasmanian Department of Education. Facilitated by Engineers Australia with the cooperation of the University of Tasmania, and other private enterprise, the event has been designed to highlight the exciting range of engineering career options open to students, as well as the study pathways required to reach these career goals.
