Advancing the next generation

How we nurture talent in STEM
BAE Systems Australia is proud to nurture and inspire the next generation of Australian scientists, engineers and innovators.
BAE Systems Australia supports a range of educational and community programs designed to challenge stereotypes and excite all young people about careers in  science, technology, engineering and mathematics (called "STEM" for short). Through such initiatives we help ensure that the defence industry is better able to deliver the unique solutions that the nation needs now and into the future.
