This session is aimed at current Science students, and high school students who might be interested in studying science in the future.

Running from 14 - 22 August, National Science Week is Australia’s annual celebration of science and technology. Swinburne is proud to be hosting a range of events and activities.

Join us to hear from Swinburne Science students as they share insights on their study journey. The students, whose career stages vary from postgraduate study to working in industry, will describe how their time at Swinburne has shaped where they are today.

  • Alexandra Petzke, Biochemistry honours student
  • Oliver Clementson, Mathematics in Industry
  • Samantha Mackay, PhD Student, Chemistry (with an environmental science view)
  • Lily Martin, Physics in industry
