You will learn to think like engineers, architects and designers, and computing professionals through hands-on and interactive workshops and presentations, facilitated by lecturers and our wonderful Student Ambassador team. You’ll also have the chance to explore UQ’s engineering, design and computing precinct including the state-of-the-art makerspace facility, UQ Innovate and the new Andrew N. Liveris Building, which opened to students this year.

You can enrol in one, two or three days.
