1. Real-world experience
Apply your problem-solving knowledge to come up with solutions to real-world engineering projects!
2. Compete with the best
Imagine being part of the team that brings home a world record! You’ll get the chance to compete in projects that are internationally award-winning and record-breaking.
3. Professional and leadership development
By working on a real-life engineering problem, you will be able to practice and develop your leadership skills along the way.
Through their involvement in Student Projects, UNSW Engineering graduates have found a career working in engineering consulting, and project management companies. These organisations recognise that our students have an enhanced set of skills to apply to all engineering work including technology development, creativity, communication, partnership engagement, and teamwork.
4. See the world
From working on projects in Australia, to North America, to Poland! Student Projects can take you to compete in competitions across the world while gaining valuable hands-on project experience.
5. Build a bigger, stronger network
By joining a multidisciplinary team, working with students across all areas of engineering and international development, you develop meaningful connections that can turn into life-long friendships.
6. Industrial Training
To graduate from UNSW Engineering, all students must complete a minimum of 60 days of approved Industrial Training. Not only do you graduate with some real on-the-job experience, you also qualify for accreditation by Engineers Australia. Select Student Projects can qualify for up to 30 days of Non-Traditional Industrial Training. For more information on Industrial Training click HERE.
7. Up-skill in our UNSW Makerspaces
Have you ever been in one of our UNSW MakerSpaces? Almost all of the projects within The ChallENG Program come to life in our Makerspace Network at UNSW Sydney! You have the opportunity to up-skill through workshop development training and digital badging credentialing.
