Opportunities for Future Students


Be inspired to explore a career in engineering

An important part of the Women in Engineering program is raising the awareness of engineering as a potential career option for girls, and shattering the perception that engineering is a profession for men involving hard hats, physical labour and heavy machinery. Engineering is actually an extraordinarily diverse field, and UNSW has an illustrious history of female graduates making impact in the areas of medical science, environmental stewardship, world health and energy innovation. These engineers require lateral thinking, creativity, problem-solving and management skills.

If you are expecting an ATAR between 81.00 and 90.95 and want to study at UNSW, we encourage you to apply for the Faculty of Engineering Admissions Scheme (FEAS). FEAS is an alternative pathway for students who want to study at UNSW but don’t meet the Guaranteed Entry Rank (GE) of 91.00. FEAS applies to most UNSW Engineering undergraduate programs, including the double degrees with a GE of 91.

See our FEAS page for more information.
