EEEWA's mission is achieved through a diverse, innovative set of industry, educational and social events.
From our niche electrical and software workshops to engaging multiple industry bodies and student societies at professional networking events, EEEWA has had a track record of success in providing a multi-faceted, engaging experience for students at UWA.

ELECTRICAL WORKSHOPS & OUTREACH
An important goal of EEEWA is to offer students the opportunity to upskill themselves with practical electrical and robotics workshops. These workshops allow students hands-on experience and develop technical capabilities that can complement soft skills.
EEEWA also places a significant focus on outreach workshops, especially to highschool and international students and the UWA Girls in Engineering Program to share our passion and knowledge beyond UWA.
MECH VS ELEC QUIZ NIGHT
In collaboration with the Institute of Mechnical Engineers UWA Student Chapter, this is EEEWA's highliy anticipated annual social event. The mechnical versus electrical themed quiz night attracted over 50 students and 30 industry representatives in 2018 from Rio Tinto, Clough, Siemens, Jacobs and Key Engineering Solutions.
BUSINESS START-UP PANEL DISCUSSION
With panelists from some of Perth's most innovative technology start-up organisations WeDispatch, Sciosity, HUMM Tech, Engineering Consultants Australia and Key Engineering Solutions, this event allowed students to engage with experienced entrepreneurs in Perth's start-up community.
Drawing in a crowd of over 40 students from both UWA and Curtin University, this was a fantastic opportunity for students to learn about the struggles and rewards of starting a business as well as showcasing the passion and challenges of the start-up community.
In addition to our popular soldering, breadboarding, arduino and programming workshops, EEEWA also collaborates with companies to allow students to gain an insight into the tools used in industry.
Highlights include a collaboration with technology consulting firm Visagio to teach the foundations of Microsoft Basic (VBA) as well as our popular Beginner's Guide to Breadboarding and Arduino workshops.
'THE FUTURE OF' SERIES
This series aims to highlight the different specialisations within electrical and electronic engineering, including control systems, power and renewables.
Through these events, we were able to showcase companies such as Chevron, ABB, and Horizon Power who shared an insight into different careers electrical engineering students can enter and also highlighted important industry events and exciting developments.
This event is probably one of the best I've been to [of this nature] at UWA.

If the first one is of this high standard, I can only see a bright future for this event in years to come.
