No closing date

In partnership with the IAC, UNSW run an annual work experience program to promote engineering career options to high school students. The program is for Year 10 students across NSW and runs for five days.

You can gain first-hand experience with engineering projects across six areas of the civil and environmental engineering fields:

  • Coastal and Port Infrastructure
  • Structures and Design
  • Construction and Project Management
  • Water, Wastewater and Environment
  • Road, Transport and Underground
  • Surveying and Geospatial Engineering

Daily field trips are led by UNSW staff, supported by engineering professionals. Students visit a range of engineering sites across Sydney, followed by an afternoon debrief and short report writing session at the UNSW Kensington campus. Students selected for the program will be required to meet daily at 8.50am, at Central Station, with each day of the program finishing around 4pm at UNSW. Students MUST attend the full five days.

UNSW is interested in receiving applications from Careers Advisers for students who are self-motivated, reliable, punctual and have strong mathematical ability. Importantly, students must have an interest in pursuing a career in engineering.
