The Indigenous Australian Engineering School program and its associated scholarship program (together IAES) are the principal activity of Engineering Aid Australia.  

The IAES seeks to provide First Nations youth with increased education and career opportunities in Engineering and Technology. The IAES, since its inception in 1995, we have aimed to encourage and assist First Nations youth from around Australia to complete Year 12 at High School and progress to gain a tertiary qualification that enables our youth to pursue a career in Engineering or Technology. 

Our Purpose & Passion is to ignite the big dreams of First Nations youth, through increasing education and career opportunities and outcomes in Engineering and Technology. We Acknowledge and respect First Nations history, knowledge and culture as Australia’s First People in the engineering and technology space.

Each year we hold 2 schools and 2 booster camps, our host universities partner with us to provide a live-in program that will feature a combination of activities that will offer young Indigenous Australian’s exposure to engineering and STEM as a university course and career.
