Boost for young women engineers


The School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at RMIT

University has announced $25,000 in scholarships for high-achieving young

women finishing school.

 

Five students will each receive $5,000 scholarships if they have received an

ENTER score of 95 or above and begin engineering studies at RMIT in 2010 in one

of the following programs:



Aerospace Engineering


Automotive Engineering


Mechanical Engineering


Advanced Manufacturing and Mechatronics


Professor Aleksandar Subic, Head of the School, said: “It’s part of the RMIT

mission to enable young women to develop advanced engineering capabilities to

meet the challenges of a changing world.


“There’s still an idea that engineering is for men, but the reality is changing rapidly.


“Our women graduates are being recognised as future leaders by industry. RMIT

not only provides young women with quality learning, but can offer them

international work placements and research projects, too.


“The scholarships will make it even easier for young women to study engineering

with us,” Professor Subic said.
