Engineers: the creative problem solvers

Location: G29 and G30, New Horizons, 20 Research Way

“The walls between art and engineering exist only in our minds.” – Theo Jansen

Engineering is problem solving and questioning the world around you. It’s building things and taking them apart and asking why and how they work. It is also a creative pursuit – engineers are creative problem solvers. In this workshop, you’ll get to work on activities designed by final year students using the skills they learnt in their Engineering degree.

Cracking the code on cybercrime

"I'm interested in things that change the world or that affect the future and wondrous, new technology where you see it, and you're like, 'Wow, how did that even happen? How is that possible?'" - Elon Musk

Information technology encourages your readiness for change, development of new ideas and equips you with the skills to utilise the Internet of Things. In this workshop, you’ll experience how our Monash Information Technology students are developing the answers to cracking down on cybercrime
