Engineer your future - Career Evenings
Some of the greatest technological achievements of the 20th century, such as electrification, automobiles, health technologies, space travel and high performance materials are part of our lives today because engineers have used their mathematical and scientific knowledge to make them a reality.
Students, parents and teachers are invited to attend one or more of our engineering career evenings to find out morea bout study and careers in engineering.
Light refreshments are provided at all of our career sessions.

Glenn Murcutt – ‘Architecture for Place’ exhibition
Date: 7 March – 25 March, 2012
Gallery hours: 12pm to 6pm, Wednesday to Saturday
Venue: University Gallery
Presented by the Architecture Foundation Australia, this exhibition featured architecture and drawings by Glenn Murcutt, photography by Anthony Browell, and video documentary by Catherine Hunter and Bruce Inglis.
Murcutt is Australia’s most internationally recognised architect and Architecture for Place profiled a selection of his built work and current projects, through his drawings and his working methods. Browell’s photography captures the essence of Murcutt’s design: harmony between building and nature. The exhibition particularly focused on Murcutt’s houses, private residences that are not open to visitors. With his focus on the sustainability of the natural environment, Murcutt’s works are at the forefront of contemporary architecture. They are eloquent in form and refined in detailing, but primarily concerned with bringing the qualities of the surrounding world into the daily experience of the occupants.
Pursuing an architecture that is rooted in Australia’s culture and its diverse climate and topography, Murcutt is also active internationally, teaching and lecturing as a Professor at Universities throughout the world.

In Search of Angels, – Images from the University's Electron Microscope Centre
Date: 15 February – 3 March, 2012
Time: Exhibition launch from 6pm
Venue: University Gallery
How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?
Medieval philosophers debated whether angels had an ethereal existence as a pure intelligence or whether they had any spatial extent, and if so, how much?
In microscopy, we seek to understand the behaviour of material objects (cells and organisms, metals and ceramics, electronic circuits, etc.) by closer and closer scrutiny. This search not only unearths scientific understanding, but also the inherent beauty of the tiny structures that make up the material world around us and yet which go unnoticed in our daily lives.
This often requires magnifications so large (greater than 100,000X) that the image is quite surreal and disconnected from the object under study.
We are fortunate to have a new Electron Microscope and X-ray Centre on the Callaghan campus and several new microscopes with which to conduct our studies. This exhibition brings together some of the more striking images taken with these instruments and their predecessors, including micro-forests, hidden cities and the labyrinthine surface structures of animal, vegetable and mineral origin.
- Professor Erich Kisi, Academic Head, Electron Microscope and X-ray Centre, the University of Newcastle

Terror Security and Money: The Evidence of the Value of Counter-Terrorism Expenditure
Date: Wednesday 15 February, 2012
Time: 5.30pm for a 6.00pm start
Venue: Engineers Australia Auditorium, 122 Parry Street Newcastle West
The presentation, featuring guest speaker Professor Mark Stewart, will review key findings of a new book Terror, Security, and Money: Balancing the Risks, Benefits, and Costs of Homeland Security (Oxford University Press, October 2011) that uses risk-based decision theory to determine acceptability of risk which is crucial to prioritise security and protective measures against terrorist events.
