How will WE support your journey

The Women in Engineering team educate and inspire young women to consider a career in engineering, support them through their university experience, and ensure they are adequately prepared and enjoy a smooth transition into an exciting career in industry.

Support from day one

WE support the transition from high school to university life. As QTAC offers are released, WE call all successful women to congratulate them and answer their questions. Our team prides itself on getting to know you and is genuinely invested in your university experience and career success. WE host events throughout the year to assist in forming study groups and promoting lasting friendships. 

Student leadership roles

Engineering students are given the opportunity to join our WE student leadership team to inspire, encourage and support prospective and current female engineering students. These student leaders gain professional experience and grow in confidence by leading presentations and workshops at school visits and major events, and are also given the unique opportunity to take part in our industry mentoring program.

Industry connections

The WE team is supported by ten industry program partners who are actively involved in supporting and connecting with our cohort of female engineering students. WE host curated networking events that provide invaluable industry connections. For many of our students, these connections have led to internships and even graduate roles.
