Proudly hosted by Queensland University of Technology (QUT), this is our twentieth Engineering Link Project in Brisbane.
An Engineering Link Project is a two-day event for Year 11 and 12 students who are interested in finding out what engineering REALLY is!
All students will participate in two full-day workshops in different engineering disciplines. Each workshop is designed to challenge your creativity, your knowledge of the maths and science you are learning at school, and introduce you to the engineering paradigm.
A professional engineer will outline their career and what a day in the life of an engineer is really like, then present you with a problem or scenario that you will have to solve in small teams. You will test materials, complete design calculations and submit a proposal to the engineer. If approved, you will construction your solution. The engineer will evaluate each solution against the criteria and declare the winning consortium.
Students can choose from up to 10 different disciplines over the two days, providing unique and valuable insights into this exciting career. Students will be asked to make preference selections closer to the event, via email.
During the two days, students will also experience QUT Engineering by working in labs and getting a feel for university life. This is worth the price of admission on its own.
Event Cost: $66
