A unique opportunity to up your STEM game

Engineering Futures is a live-in program giving students in Years 10, 11 and 12 the chance to sample university life and get more familiar with STEM subjects during the school holidays.

Fully funded by JCU, the program offers students a distinctive experience of tertiary education in science, engineering and technology-related fields, while still studying in high school. Over five days, students live on-campus and take part in academic, personal development and team-building activities, with opportunities to meet current JCU students, university staff and other like-minded high school students.
