MASA & MAMEC: STEM Night: Alternative Careers

We gave this one a shout out a few weeks back. It's a great event for tech students who want to meed industry reps and find out what they're after - but the tickets close tomorrow, so don't sleep on it!

If you are a STEM student looking to expand your horizons beyond your designated degree and help break down some of society’s most complex issues, then our STEM Night will help provide you with a valuable insight into alternate career paths that are available to you!

There are endless opportunities open to students with backgrounds in science, engineering, technology, or mathematics, with many top-tier firms across the commercial sector particularly looking for STEM educated individuals.

With this in mind, our inaugural STEM Night is specifically here to help open your eyes to these opportunities and will include a Q&A from talented panellists who were once in your very shoes and came from STEM backgrounds.

Date: Tuesday, 10th September
Time: 6:30pm-9:00pm

Monash R U OK? Day

We know that uni can be rough sometimes, and so can the tech industry. So from time to time, it's essential for us all to take a look not only at own own mental health, but also that of own friends, family and peers. We're proud to support R U OK? Day for helping to bring this issue into the limelight.

"Are you okay?" A simple yet powerful question that could change someone's day. R U OK Day aims to break the stigma around mental health and empower everyone to connect with the people around them, and start a conversation with anyone who may be struggling. The simplest questions, and the will to actively listen makes all the difference in suicide prevention.

We are running a series of events across all of the campuses for R U OK? Day. See the full schedule here.
