The ChallENG Program: Real-world projects

The ChallENG Program connects UNSW Engineering students, academics and industry to exciting, real-world, project-based learning initiatives. The program prepares students for their future careers by taking their learning experiences to the next level. Our students are exposed to a multidisciplinary learning approach that emphasises the development of technical and design skills, and expands their professional expertise.

Important note to first year students:The VIP & Maker Games are elective courses for 2nd year students and onwards. We encourage you to save your first-year elective for years two or three of your degree. This way you will have room in your program to join one of these exciting projects.
