Student experience

Make the most of your time at Sydney
There are many great reasons to study engineering, computer science or project management at the University of Sydney. Whether you’re still in school or taking your next step, see how good your university experience could be.

University life is more than studying hard and attending class. Getting involved in one (or more) of our clubs and societies is a great way to meet new friends with similar interests. They will also prepare you for the workforce by providing networking opportunities and allowing you to develop your leadership and communication skills. Whatever course you choose to study, you’re sure to find a club or society that interests you. 

Below is just a selection of the clubs and societies you could join. For a full list visit the University of Sydney Union website.

Test your skills and abilities against your peers through a bit of friendly competition. Opportunities include:

  • Design, build and race an internal combustion or electric race car in ther Formula Society of Automotive Engineers (FSAE) Australasian competition.
  • Compete in challenges involving real-world problems such as improving food storage, water collection, recycling or irrigation systems as part of the Advanced Engineering Program.
  • Create innovative solutions to challenges set by Dymocks Australia as part of an undergraduate student team and be in the running to win $5000.

Research by the Faculty of Engineering is multidisciplinary, collaborative and focused around today's big issues. Key research themes include:

  • biomedical engineering and technologies
  • complex systems
  • data science and computer engineering
  • energy and the environment
  • food products
  • processes and supply chain
  • human-centred technology
  • materials and structures
