If you like field trips and the outdoors and you enjoy biology, environmental science or earth science, come to this session and find out about the exciting career opportunities in these areas.
Find out about careers in biomedical science or molecular biology. How are simple plants and animals used to develop our understanding of important biological problems? What advances have been made in biomedical research? How does molecular biology help us understand human reproduction and our iconic native animals? If you like biology or chemistry, this presentation will provide you with lots of exciting options and career paths to consider.
Why study science? What kind of job will a degree in the sciences lead to? Come along to this session and find out why it is an exciting time for students to study the sciences and hear about the diverse career paths that our graduates pursue.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear about the significant role you can play as an engineer, computer scientist or mathematician of the future. Learn how the right choice of program can prepare you for a challenging and rewarding career. This discussion will highlight the future of engineering and computer science and the importance of mathematics in relation to relevant issues such as sustainability, renewable energy, the mining boom and information and communication technology industries.
A discussion that will emphasise the diversity of mechanical engineering with a focus on the opportunities that await successful graduates from some of South Australia’s most sought after and unique engineering programs. Graduates from this discipline design and create projects, products and processes which are environmentally sustainable, reliable and economically sound. With a solid knowledge base and wide set of life skills, graduates have gained employment in a variety of industries from robotics, laser technology and biomedical research through to aerospace, as exemplified by famous graduate Dr Andy Thomas, Australia’s first astronaut.
How did engineers and engineering technology affect the development of human civilisation? Where are we now and what will future civilisations look like? Where would society be without safe homes and buildings or without an effective transport system? Learn about how our civilisation depends on civil and mining engineers and about their developing role in modern society.
We are still in the midst of the computer revolution. Our society has been transformed and continues to transform due to new technologies and the businesses and services that are spawned from these technologies. Companies, products and services, such as iPad, iPhone, iPod, eBook, Kindle, eBay, Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Twitter just didn’t exist 10–15 years ago. The transformation of society in terms of the way we socialise, work, and entertain ourselves is huge. Moreover, behind each of these companies, products and services, is an interesting story of self-made billionaires motivated by the fun and potential of exploring new technologies.
