Transgrid Civil Engineering Scholarship

TransgridCharles Sturt University has partnered with transmission network leader Transgrid to develop the new Transgrid Civil Engineering Scholarship Fund.

The new Transgrid Scholarship fund will support 100 Charles Sturt engineering students over a four-year period and will supply them with $20,000 each to put towards the cost of their study.

The $2 million-dollar multi-focused scholarship is open for ALL first-year students undertaking a Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) (Honours) or a Bachelor of Technology (Civil) / Master of Engineering (Civil) at Charles Sturt.

The scholarship funds are distributed annually post-census, over four years, ($5000 per year) for the successful students to use as needed. The funds can be spent however it’s needed – whether that’s the costs associated with your study, living expenses or learning resources.

Our eligible engineering courses

At Charles Sturt, we’re producing a new type of civil engineer – one who wants to make a change to help create a world worth living in.

Our specialisations include civil design, geotechnical, water and structural engineering. From building urban infrastructure to designing tunnels, delivering clean water to predicting floods, and designing skyscrapers to making construction more sustainable. And the engineers who teach in every discipline share a single passion… to make things in our world better.

Developed in consultation with industry leaders, our innovative engineering degrees build expertise through a combination of group-based campus learning on real projects and flexible online delivery. The degrees are designed around project-based learning, where workshops replace lectures, projects replace exams, and our innovative and agile Topic Tree replaces semester-long subjects.

You’ll also spend one to four years in a paid work placement as a cadet engineer with Transgrid or another host organisation committed to your development. So, you can be confident you’ll graduate highly skilled and with extensive contacts – all of which will help you land your dream job in the industry.

Not only will you gain practical experience in the placement, but you’ll also get paid while you learn – which you will receive in addition to the scholarship payments.

Check out our Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) (Honours) and Bachelor of Technology (Civil) / Master of Engineering (Civil) for information about the degrees that are creating a community of student engineers blazing a new trail in the industry.
