Join us at STEMinism – UC’s Women in Engineering and Technology evening!

This free event is aimed at female students in Year 11-13 who are interested in finding out more about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) study and career options. Parents and teachers are also welcome.

STEMinism will highlight how a career in STEM can help you make a difference in the world. Engineering and technology impact society in so many ways – improving the lives of those in need and innovating how we do things in our day-to-day lives.

You’ll hear from a range of inspiring female speakers working in STEM industries or currently studying at UC. Plus, submit a question in your registration form for our panel discussion, featuring academics, students and professionals.

There will also be the opportunity to find out about degree options, including:

  • Bachelor of Engineering with Honours
  • Bachelor of Product Design
  • Bachelor of Science (majoring in Computer Science, Maths, Statistics, Data Science or Financial Engineering)
  • Bachelor of Forestry Science

Free mocktails, nibbles and goody bags will be provided.
