Over 200 female year 8, 9 and 10 students from as far as Lithgow, Gilgandra and Mudgee as well as Bathurst and Orange attended the Power of Engineering event at Charles Sturt University on 6 May. This event will gave participants the chance to experience first-hand what a career in engineering entails, including the diversity of roles and working locations on offer in regional areas like Bathurst.
Students will tried their hand at various engineering exercises and were inspired by successful people currently working in various engineering roles.
At Power of Engineering we know it's important to have the whole community involved. To create this change of diversity in engineering, we are thrilled to partner with CSU and local industry – Energy Australia, Seymour Whyte, GHD, CDE Designs, NSW Roads and Maritime Services and Arup.
“This is the first regional event we have run outside of Queensland and our largest event to date with 200 students attending. This is testament to the enthusiasm these young women have to exploring these opportunity as many demanded we increase our original event capacity of 100 places.
