Our Dean, Steve Mackay, attended this day long event on Wednesday 31st May. He met senior students from a number of schools in the south west corner of Western Australia – his first foray into the high school sector.
The Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) is proudly presenting four sturdy, industry-driven BSc degrees in engineering to students around the world, using our interactive, live online method of learning. With these qualifications and our first campus ready in East Perth it was time to meet would-be technologists and engineers in their final months of school and with their eyes on their futures and tertiary education.
Steve was delighted to meet these young people; some students are clear about pursuing careers in engineering, but for others the path ahead remains a little murky. The flexibility of our learning platform was plainly heartening for those students unwilling to study away from home. And the fact that EIT has a more personal approach to education appealed to others.
