Let’s build things! Let’s solve problems! Perhaps your interest and aptitude in science and maths has guided you to engineering. Maybe you love designing and building, or maybe you have ideas that will make the world a better place. No matter your interest, a career in STEM will let face challenges, work with brilliant minds, put your skills and talents to great use and shape a future where our tools, vehicles, structures and cities are more functional, efficient and accessible.
This course will help us create a progressive, inclusive environment that allows more women in science to lead and excel.
It’s an incredible time to be working in rail and infrastructure construction.
Many women are loving the sense of achievement of working in areas and occupations that were previously male dominated.

Australia expects to spend over $100 billion in new infrastructure projects over the next five years
so the demand in engineering and construction alone is going to be significant. Women are well placed to make their mark in this career and can bring a myriad of credentials such as academic, teamwork, collaboration and flexibility in their approach.
Join us for an amazing program and hear from a range of phenomenal women in engineering and about the awesome career opportunities.
So, what do you need to get involved?
Nothing other than a passion and love for the things you study.
