Engineering Link Project (ELP) event

Students experience working in a university engineering laboratory

This workshop is run in conjunction with the Engineering Link Group as part of the Engineering Link Project. LEAP is sponsoring a limited number of places at this event. This activity requires students to currently be undertaking VCE Maths Methods or Pre-Methods. Students also studying Specialist Maths and/or, Physics are particularly encouraged to apply.


What will you do?

This two day workshop gives you an opportunity to explore in depth different engineering disciplines. Each day begins with career presentations by engineers from the local community.

Then in a group with other students, you will address a model problem, considering the issues, testing materials, designing solutions and producing proposals.

Your proposal will then be assessed by an engineer and you will get to build and test the solution to see if it works.

Each day you will have the chance to choose a different field of Engineering.
