Engineers Without Borders

Engineers Without Borders UNSW offers students a pathway to humanitarian engineering. In Australia a large focus is to provide students from high schools and primary schools with exposure to engineering. University students are a great way of giving high school students this exposure because of recently being in their situation and also because we do engineering! We offer schools four main modules which all have a presentation followed by a focused activity. These four modules explore a large range of engineering disciplines such as Civil Engineering, Bio-medical Engineering, Renewable Energy Engineering and much more! As a university student you will be part of the organisation and running of these workshops. As well as this, the workshops are very hands on and require presentation skills and these skills are not just related to engineering, so anyone (not just engineers) are welcome to join!

Alongside these workshops we have our biggest event, a week-long, all expenses paid for trip around regional NSW that we have neatly named Regioneering. At Regioneering we present the school workshops (mentioned above) but to a large variety of schools (over 50 in some trips!) going as far as places such as Dubbo, Bathurst, Newcastle and Port Maquarie! This trip generally happens in the breaks between of each semester (so one in winter and one in summer) and are both once in a lifetime opportunities. 

Engineers without Borders also offers opportunities throughout the year to visit a second/third world country to help out the rural communities that live there. When at the rural community you will help them build a solution to one of their everyday problems, whilst also experiencing their culture and background and is also definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity. 

As well as if this, if you want to be involved in a fun, friendly group of people being involved in picnics, speaker nights (Design Summit info and Pathways to Humanitarian), movie nights, hikes, study tours (of various sustainable systems whether it be water, electricity, etc), BBQs, App Tech comp, EWB Games (social sporting comp), bake sales, local partnerships (such as SAIL) and inter-university interaction then definitely have a look at our club stall at O-Week and join! (P.S. it’s free to join).

UNSW Consulting Club

The UNSW Consulting Club (UCC) is a student initiative proudly supported by the UNSW Business School. We aim to allow motivated students from all faculties to enhance their interests in consulting and strategy through training and participation in case competitions. We are a think-tank, a collective body where innovative ideas are created and where current business issues are discussed. UCC has openly embraced the case culture which has been growing in strength globally. Having experienced the benefits and opportunities that these case competitions have to offer, UCC has felt that UNSW undergraduate students would greatly appreciate the same spirit that we have felt. We have exciting plans to help expose as many students as possible, to promote the case culture. 

Our training structure incorporates 3 key pillars:

  • Problem Solving
  • Presentation
  • Teamwork

We offer various opportunities within the consulting sphere with case competitions, weekly training sessions, case interview preparation, and networking. As a society, we have continued to see growth in membership and witnessed the profile of UCC strengthen. Join our Facebook group or mailing list to keep up-to-date with our announcements and activities.
