Students in Years 5 to 8 will engage with the following three Engineers during a live 1 hour Virtual presentation and will have the opportunity to ask questions during the Q&A session.


Engineer 1: Felicity Furey, Engineer in Residence-Swinburne University
Felicity never expected to be an engineer and build some of Australia’s biggest infrastructure projects, work in a male dominated industry, set up and lead four businesses, learn how to fly a fighter jet or be passionate about how amazing engineering is. But that is exactly how her engineering career has unfolded.

Engineer 2: Omar El Senagawy, Senior Consultant - Engineering, Assets, and Project Delivery, KPMG
Omar will share the various roles he has undertaken as a Chemical and Environmental Engineer and how this has taken him to different parts of the world!
