The School of Engineering and Information Technology (SEIT)
SEIT delivers research-informed education in its high quality, accredited, globally recognised engineering and computing degrees to its undergraduate students. The School offers programs in electrical, mechanical, aeronautical, and civil engineering as well as in aviation, information technology and cyber security to graduates and professionals who will be Australia’s future technology decision makers.
SEIT and AIAA held a STEM outreach day where over 50 local high school students had fun assembling and launching rockets, thought about 'How hard is it to get to Mars?' and had a go at designing a spacecraft capable of taking 6 astronauts from Earth to Mars. The most exciting part of the day was when they had the opportunity to ask questions of former NASA astronaut Col. Pamela Melroy!
