It is never too early for a student to learn and apply themselves to the goal of attending university for an engineering degree. Curious, inventive children are driven by creativity and aptitude, supported by devoted parents and guided by talented educators. Our goal is to provide a third point of inspiration and direction for future engineers, backing the efforts of their studies and the support of their families and schools.

EngTalk - have an engineer visit your school!

EngTalk aims to reach out to WA high schools and inspire the next generation of engineers. Working with our special interest group Women in Engineering, high school students will have access to engineers who have kindly volunteered their time to share their experiences and shine a spotlight on engineering as a potential career for students in their final school years.

The EngTalk presentation will be given by engineers of differing ages and experience, who will give a detailed insight into the engineering profession, as well as share their individual stories that have lead to their careers in engineering.

EngTalk is available to all Western Australian schools.

If you would like to host an EngTalk presentation, or to find out more about this exciting initiative, please contact the Program Coordinator via email or on 08 6214 6319.

If you are an engineer interested in participating in EngTalk presentations throughout the year please contact the Program Coordinator.

With the assistance of our members, Engineers Australia is able to arrange for an Engineer to visit your school to promote careers in engineering. Every effort will be made to fulfill your request, although in some cases this may not be possible.

To make a request (Teachers or Event Coordinator's only), please email the Program Coordinator.

Join our database of engineers available to visit schools

In order to fulfil requests from schools we do require our members assistance. If you would be available to visit a school to discuss careers in engineering please email us.
