Spring into Engineering Program for Aspiring Girls

Southern Cross University is committed to encouraging and supporting women to consider a career in engineering and to learn more about the wonders, opportunities and diversity of career paths available within the discipline. 

Women in engineering careers enjoy:

  • seeing their efforts make a real difference in communities
  • working creatively with processes that start with designs on paper and go all the way to real life applications
  • project management
  • working with people and in teams
  • leadership responsibilities
  • strategizing and problem solving
  • using the tools of maths and science to bring about change and predict engineering success

It is for these reasons that Southern Cross University has developed the Spring into Engineering Program for Aspiring Girls offering a one-day program that provides young women with the chance to explore university life and engineering more deeply, and in a fun way too.

In 2018 the program will be offered in school term and offers a mystery tour into engineering industry.  Students joining us will benefit greatly from our adventures around the Northern Rivers region, learning firsthand about the importance of engineering in our lives.
