Engineers Australia Riverina Regional Group have hosted the Discover Engineering Day for the past two years with great success.
The day provides students in years 9 and 10 with exposure to Engineering as an industry and a profession and to encourage them to study the most appropriate subjects in their final years of school.
The programme consists of a series of presentations by student and professional Engineers as well as hands on activities and demonstrations.
There is also an education hub where tertiary institutions have stands to discuss their various Engineering courses and accommodation options. Some institutions in attendance in 2013 were: University of NSW, Sydney University, TAFE NSW, Defence Force Recruiting, University of Western Sydney, University of Technology Sydney, University of Wollongong, Newcastle University and Australian National University.
