What is Propel?

Our Propel initiative allows you to get hands-on and learn about programming, robotics, project management, technology and engineering, all while having lots of fun.

By simply participating in four activities while you're still in high school you will be eligible for a $2000 scholarship to study abroad once you begin your engineering, computing or project management degree with us.

Here are just some of the upcoming on-campus activities that you can enjoy:

Open Day Saturday August 26
