Dodgeball Networking 2022

Dodgeball Networking enables students pursuing a degree in Engineering and Mathematical Sciences to connect with industry professionals through a unique, fun and engaging experience.

 

Companies and students will team up, allowing for conversations throughout the games, and during intermissions between games. Students will rotate through teams to allow interactions with every company. After the games, we will move outside for some refreshments and further networking opportunities.

Engineering Your Career 2022

This major networking evening was a collaborative event with the Chemical & Process Engineering Club of UWA (CPEC), The Civil Society UWA (TCS), Society of Petroleum Engineers UWA (SPE), and Institution of Mechanical Engineers UWA Student Chapter (IMechE). This event involved more than 15 companies in major industries, including oil and gas, mining, renewable energy, chemical manufacturing, water, consultancy, and construction.

 

In order to expose our members to a greater variety of networking opportunities, these collaborative events bring greater diversity and resources to the table. Amongst networking sessions and short presentations by select sponsoring companies, students are able to hear first-hand about the range of companies, the exciting projects that they are working on, and find out more about how to get involved.

In the modern workplace, employers look for workers who have more than just well-developed technical skills. Therefore, students need to have a good understanding of the importance of developing critical soft skills to allow for a smooth transition into the workspace.
