Galuwa Experience

(PDF, 431kB, 8 pages)

The Galuwa Experience is a fantastic chance for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students to discover the opportunities a degree in engineering or IT can provide.  

Galuwa means 'to climb' in the Gadigal language, and that's exactly what we want Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students to do.

The 5-day program attracts students who are interested in the fields of engineering or IT, as well as those who have an aptitude for maths, creative thinking and problem solving and are unsure of which career path to follow. The free program features interactive hands-on workshops, site visits with industry partners, cultural activities, information about career paths and lunch. Participants also hear inspirational talks from students, cadets and professionals.
