As our Year 10 STEM program continues to grow each year at MSJ, we are hearing more of our students have a passion for Science, Mathematics, Technology and Engineering.It is important that we continue to empower our girls to feel that they can access this fantastic growth industry as successfully as their male counterparts.

Students complete a year of foundation engineering units then choose their specialisation at the end of first year to start in the second year of the course.
The following are examples of three universities that offer a flexible first year degree:
