Highlights of Engfest

Building tours & Maker space demonstrations

Join a tour of our award winning building which incorporates the latest technology, encourages teamwork and provides facilities where students can physically build things. It includes a collaborative learning zone, maker studios, project spaces, workshops and a gallery, as well as a 'pitch zone' for fine-tuning entrepreneurial skills.

Maker Space demonstrations will showcase the specialised equipment that our student engineers learn from every day. Tours and demonstrations will be held 11am, 1pm and 3.30pm every day throughout Engfest.

Student exhibitions

Quiz the Student Engineers behind the projects! As a prospective student of CSU Engineering, these sessions will give you invaluable insight into what you learn and experience in the first six months of this course. Picture yourself in their shoes next year!

As an industry partner the exhibition gives you an opportunity to connect with our student engineers, uncover their engineering expertise and entrepreneurial flair whilst they demonstrate the strengths of their finished project.

Questacon Exhibit

CSU Engineering are excited to bring Questacon to Bathurst and Engfest for two weeks in June!

  • The Byte Wise exhibit includes 21 hands-on displays, including logic puzzles, code breaking and geometry.
  • Exhibits are targeted towards students from 10-15 years-old, but can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages.
  • Byte Wise exhibits also link to the Australian National Curriculum across all Years 2 - 10, particularly in Mathematics and Digital Technologies
