Students in Year 11 Electro-Technology and Year 11 and 12 Information Technology visited BAE Systems Australia, Edinburgh Park, to expand on their understanding of defence solutions and advanced technologies and to discover the opportunities available through skilled training.
BAE Systems is Australia’s most versatile defence and security company working closely with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) and security customers by delivering innovative solutions.
Students were extremely excited to commence their visit with the opportunity to see various areas of the manufacturing facility. After an initial introduction, students moved into three groups visiting areas related to electronic systems, advanced manufacturing, IT and cybersecurity and the JORN project, which relates to the students’ own Remote Target Detection project developed by BAE Systems.
Employees in each of the areas were very informative and we appreciate the time they took to explain their role within the company expressed with great warmth and insight.
The tour concluded with a Q&A.
Students thoroughly enjoyed the tour and felt privileged to have visited BAE Systems. They realise the various possible career pathways available within the company.
Thank you to Lou Pivato and Sharyn Richter for organising the visit. St Patrick’s Technical College is honoured to work in partnership with BAE Systems, together focussing on enhancing educational opportunities and encouraging students to pursue a career in the industry. We look forward to working together in future opportunities.
