Senior students who are curious about tertiary education in engineering attended a workshop conducted by the University of Western Australia Young Engineers (UWAYE) at Servite College.
UWAYE is a Student Chapter of Engineers Australia at the University of Western Australia. UWAYE’s mission is to generate and promote opportunities for the personal and professional development of all Engineering, Maths and Sciences students.
Our students explored key questions and areas:
- What is Engineering?
- What are the key skills of Engineers?
- Where can Engineering take you?
- The importance of Engineering Ethics
- The Engineering Design Process
The workshop challenged students to think critically and to discuss ethical issues as they addressed real-world engineering problems. Students worked collaboratively to present innovative solutions to the emerging cost of electric vehicles in Western Australia.
Students had the opportunity to ask questions about the engineering journey and gain tips to study effectively for university entrance exams.

It was an interesting insight into the lives of engineers both at university and in the workforce. What was quite eye-opening was that there are multiple different branches of engineering and all of them are more than just ‘applied physics’. Finally, it was interesting to be able to tackle some problems with friends that relate to quite a broad and fascinating profession.

The insight into an engineering student’s life enabled me to understand the vast options we have available to us.
