The Curtin Motorsport Team is a wholly student-run organisation where participants compete in the Formula SAE design competition – an international engineering competition demanding the annual production of a high-performance formula-style vehicle. The program introduces participants to the challenges of diverse, team-driven engineering project work encouraging technical expertise, strong project management and interpersonal skills.
The School Outreach program is one of several programs developed by Engineers Without Borders (EWB) to achieve its mission, to connect, educate and empower people through humanitarian engineering solutions. Volunteers are involved in going out and teaching high school students about social justice and the place of engineering and technology in delivering social justice.
The STEMinist program focuses on supporting young men and women training to be educators, collaborating with experienced STEM professional women who together inspire primary aged students to develop engagement and attitudes towards STEM through Makerspace projects. Participants engage in workshops to master key skills and concepts and then attend primary schools to work alongside STEM professionals in classroom sessions.
STEM Outreach provides engaging and innovative programs that aim to connect schools and community to STEM and Curtin research. Representing the Faculty of Science and Engineering’s commitment to community engagement, STEM Outreach delivers workshops, camps, excursions, incursions and competitions for students and teachers across metropolitan and regional Western Australia.
The STEM Study Buddies program provides one-on-one peer support to first year students to help develop effective academic behaviours, systems knowledge, study skills, organisation and time management required to be successful in their chosen course.
The Volunteer SciEng program provides an opportunity for Science and Engineering (SAE) students to participate in projects to support community initiatives and foster a atmosphere of innovation and entrepreneurship, underpinned by interdisciplinary groups of SAE students. This program will include internal and external volunteering opportunities for SAE students.
Volunteer SciEng program also includes our Student as Partners who are involved in our Student Consultative Committee (SCC). This committee is designed to capture all the complaints and compliments about faculty units, lecturers, and degree in general. Based of the feedback the faculty is able to make improvements to the student experience where needed.
