The ChallENG Program

The ChallENG Program consists of four pillars:

  • Vertically Integrated Projects
  • The Maker Games
  • Student Projects
  • Social Impact

The four pillars are exciting, real-world, project-based learning initiatives. This multidisciplinary educational approach connects students, academics and industry enabling students to develop the essential technical and professional skills so they will thrive in their future career.

Vertically Integrated Projects

The Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) Program is an innovative approach to enhancing higher education by engaging undergraduate and postgraduate students in ambitious, long-term, multidisciplinary project teams that are led by faculty researchers.

Each VIP forms a long-term (three-plus years) team of students from second year onwards. The long-term nature of the projects provides students with the opportunity to grow as a team and make substantial contributions to their area of research.

The MINEX Team

Led by our head academic Chengguo Zhang, the MINEX team will bring mining into the future to provide the most effective and sustainable solutions by:

  • Designing and developing an IoT Application to conduct environment monitoring.
  • Designing and conducting an off-earth mining feasibility study.
  • Revolutionising automation within the mining industry through designing and building an automated insect inspiring robot.
