Honeywell Engineering Summer School (HESS)
 


10 - 15 DECEMBER 2017

Applications are accepted on a first come, first served basis so please register early to avoid disappointment.
 
The Honeywell Engineering Summer School Program (HESS) is an initiative supported by Honeywell, Engineers Australia - Sydney Division, NSW ‘Engineering’ Universities and participating Rotary Clubs. The aim of the summer school is to give NSW and ACT high school students a better understanding of what engineering is and how it works in every day life. HESS also provides the students with the opportunity to aid them in their decision of which engineering discipline and university they wish to study.
 
Students will meet and interact with professional engineers employed by government, private companies, researchers and academics in a wide range of engineering disciplines. They will gain valuable insight into career opportunities available to men and women in engineering. Visits to industry will provide a valuable opportunity to gain first hand experience in the role of Professional Engineers in a wide range of activities, including the management of major projects.
 
HESS will bring together 100 students from across NSW and ACT who are about to enter their final year of high school (Year 12) and who are faced with choices which will influence their future careers.
 
Successful applicants will spend 6 days living at Dunmore Lang College (DLC). During HESS, students will attend lectures/demonstrations at the following Universities: University of New South Wales, University of Sydney, University of Technology, Sydney, University of Western Sydney, Macquarie University and the University of Wollongong.
 
Through these interactive sessions, HESS will provide students with valuable insights into the many aspects of a wide range of engineering disciplines. Along with attending university lectures, there will be industrial visits where students can see the different engineering disciplines at work. HESS will be a great experience full of practical engineering activities, with lots of fun activities as well as evening social programs.
