Former IAES students attending Sydney Sponsors Reception
Since its inception, over 600 students have attended an IAES of whom more than 95% have continued on to and completed Year 12 with the help of EAA’s Continuing School Scholarships. Of the 40 students that attend each year the IAES in Sydney and Perth, on average 25% go on to study for a Degree in Engineering or a related course.
This pipeline of students has substantially increased the total number of Indigenous Engineers in Australia over the last 20 years.
A strong culture of mentoring and ‘returning to give back’ has developed over the 20 year life of the IAES Program with former IAES students who are or were Engineering undergraduates or graduates returning to participate in an IAES as Houseparent mentors and also to become Engineering Aid Australia Ambassadors.
