Indigenous Australian Engineering School

The Indigenous Australian Engineering School (IAES) is a week-long residential camp introducing students to engineering studies and careers. Students will do site visits, meet industry representatives and participate in educational activities. The program targets Indigenous students in Year 9, 10, 11 and 12 with an interest and aptitude towards engineering, science and mathematics.

Students will have an experience they will never forget, make connections with industry engineers for the future and forge relationships with other like-minded students from across Australia to become part of the IAES community.

The camp is free with all travel, meals and accommodation provided. The Indigenous Australian Engineering School (IAES) is an annual event hosted in Perth by Curtin’s Faculty of Engineering and Science, on behalf of Engineering Aid Australia. Students are supervised by Indigenous university students.

If you are selected to attend the IAES, you will also qualify for an Engineering Aid Australia Continuing School scholarship. This is to help with some of your education expenses in year 10, 11, and 12. Later, if get a place at any university in Australia in an engineering or related degree, you will be eligible for an Engineering Aid Australia Tertiary Education scholarship.
