This evening will feature a mini-lecture from one of our popular faculty members and student presentations about our different engineering specialisations, followed by an interactive Q&A session with a panel of current students, so you'll get to learn about life as an Engineering student directly from them. You'll also get to mingle with current students over refreshments towards the end of the evening, and discover if it's the right pathway for you.

All high school students who self-identify as women and are interested in studying engineering are welcome to attend. Parents, whānau, teachers and careers advisers can come along too. 

Registrations are essential as spaces are limited. Feel free to contact our Women in Engineering Adviser if you have any queries.

Thursday, 12 September | Engineer Her Future: On the Job

Room 439, level 4 (ground level)
Engineering building 401, 20 Symonds Street

Hear from engineers across a wide variety of industries to learn about what a typical day on the job looks like. 

Registrations for this event are essential, and will open later this year.

Every year, the Engineer Her Future evenings are held specifically for high school girls, their parents, and schools' careers advisers to showcase the work of women engineers at the University of Auckland. We also highlight our innovative approaches to teaching engineering, and provide an opportunity to meet current engineering students.

The aim of these evenings are to provide an overview of the vast range of engineering fields and job opportunities that come with them, as well as to encourage students to consider engineering as an exciting and fulfilling career option.

Attendees also have the opportunity to ask questions and mingle with current students from each of our nine specialisations over refreshments at the end of the evening. Come along and talk about what it's like to study engineering!
