Electrical Engineering School
Curtin University is pleased to continue its close working partnership with the School Pathways Program in WA, supporting student pathways to further studies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Students successful in the application process are provided with School Pathway Program scholarships to attend, supported by the Department of Education WA and the Federal Department of Defence.
EES has been running for 7 years now and has been an effective tool to inspire students. It aims to help students understand that engineering is not just about building bridges and buildings. If they are curious about climate change and renewable energy or if they have an interest in telecommunication gadgets, circuits, computers or robotics, the EES can satisfy that curiosity.
To be eligible for the EES, students should be enrolled in Year 11 or 12 in 2017, have an interest and aptitude towards Maths and Physics, and be passionate about electronics, computing, robotics, electrical power, and technology. Ideally we would like to see one student from each school, but if we have extra places available we could take multiples from the same school.
EES is a hands-on experience learning about the different streams within Electrical and Software Engineering by participating in fun and challenging activities. Additionally, you will be working with student-engineers and Curtin staff to learn and improve your skills in project management, team work, programming, prototyping, electrical circuits and soldering.
