ACCESS for Women


ACCESS for Women 

The Australian Computing, Coding, and Engineering Summer School for Women (ACCESS for Women) was developed by UNSW Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), along with the CSE Student Society (CSE Soc), to offer a five day summer school to up to thirty six female students going into years 11 and 12. The program aims to encourage young women to pursue Computer Science as a career path through five days of learning, social interaction, and networking with industry sponsors.


Over the five days, you will participate in

  • social activities,
  • introductory lectures,
  • tutorials,
  • Industry site visits,
  • a mid-week dinner,
  • a major project.


Our industry partners have worked with us to come up with three exciting projects for students to work on during the week.  They will cover a range of technologies.  

Site Visits

ACCESS for Women includes three site visits to our Partner Sponsors!




Annually in November and December.
