Our Objective

The objective of IAESS is to provide a challenging environment for Indigenous students to discover the benefits of the engineering profession, to provide a forum for students to meet engineering role models and to gain insights into the excitement and opportunities engineering can provide to our communities. During the IAESS, students are given the opportunity to meet engineers, participate in design work and other hands-on activities that will test newly acquired engineering skills, visit engineering projects and gain an understanding of the job opportunities that are available within the profession.

The Summer School is funded by a range of Sponsors and Donors including Commonwealth, State and Local Government agencies; mining, construction and engineering companies; and charitable organisations. Travel costs to and from the Summer School, as well as accommodation and Summer School fees are provided without charge to the participants.
