Discover Engineering Day

8 October 2004

Schools students converged on the Faculty for "Discover Engineering Day". The activities were designed to provide prospective students with the opportunity to understand the difference between the numerous streams of engineering, and to give prospective students an opportunity to experience the various engineering streams through hands on activities.

In Civil Engineering, The Head of Department, A/Prof Rob Wheen talked to students on some of the many types of bridges available for solving different transportation problems, before leading them into a brief design session to construct their own bridge.
