The 2013 Indigenous Australian Engineering Summer School (IAESS) is looking for students to participate in a week-long engineering program taking place at Curtin university in January next year.
The course is run by Curtin University in partnership with Engineering Aid Australia, and is held annually for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Students from around the country. It is a seven-day live-in summer school, and features a combination of engineering and social activities that will prepare students for further engineering studies and careers.
Students chosen to take part in the program will meet engineers and participate in classes, labs and field trips to give them a hands-on experience of engineering. As well as this, they will have the chance to form a social network to encourage each other, and others, to follow engineering careers.
To apply, students must be currently enrolled in years 10 or 11 and have demonstrated the interest and academic potential to pursue a career in engineering. Chosen students will be fully financially supported to participate in the IAESS in Perth.
For more information including application forms, brochures and videos, please visit the IAESS website.
