Telstra’s Power of Engineering event for year 9 and 10 female students

May 1, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


QUT’s Power of Engineering event is a fully funded, one-day program for female students in Years 9 and 10.  We are excited to partner with Telstra to run this event.

Do you think engineering has the power to change the world? More and more women in Australia are making a real difference through a career in engineering.

You’re invited to nominate female students in Years 9 and 10 from your school to attend this FREE one-day event.

The event will show girls that ‘everything is possible’ in their career, by giving them the chance to experience first-hand what an engineering career would be like.

Featuring practical workshops in world-class engineering labs at Telstra’s Customer Insight Centre, the girls will get to try their hand at various engineering exercises and be inspired by successful women currently working in the engineering profession. Telstra Logo
