The need for an Australian workforce with robust skills in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) is one of the nation’s biggest challenges.
Now more than ever, Australia’s defence industry needs the best and brightest minds in the country.

STEM skills are core to the development of innovative, new and world leading technologies required by our defence force. This critically important workforce will shape and guide new technologies and partner with industry, government and academia.
These people will look at the future challenges in defence and determine how we step up and meet those demands with new ways of thinking and developing cutting edge technologies.
