women in engineering program

Delivered in partnership with South Metropolitan TAFE’s Munster campus, this 20-week course is designed for women in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) who recently completed high school, are returning to work, seeking a career change, or as an alternative pathway to university.

By pairing a supportive learning environment with unique insights shared by women working in a diverse range of industry roles, we aim to remove the barriers women can face when entering the resources sector.

There are 14 fully-funded scholarships available each year, and participants will obtain a Certificate III in Process Manufacturing and Certificate II in Process Plant Operations as part of the program. 

To be eligible, applicants are required to be female, Australian residents, competent in communication and mathematics and have not previously completed the above qualifications.

Applications are open between March and April each year, with the program commencing in the July second semester. Learn more and apply via the South Metro TAFE website.
