UNSW Careers in Science Week

18 Oct – 21 Oct 2021

What is Careers in Science Week?

Careers in Science Week is a four-day festival co-hosted by the Faculty of Science, Faculty of Health and Medicine, and UNSW Employability.

While there is a focus on careers in life and health sciences, all science areas will be covered – everything from data science to physics and aviation!

The festival will provide an open forum for you to raise questions and explore ideas about how to carve a meaningful career with a science degree.  

What can you get involved in?

Throughout the week, there will be a range of events specific to you and your potential career pathways.

Exploring Careers in Science:

  • Keynote speakers share their unique science career journeys.
  • Confused about career options? An alumni panel tackles the question ‘Where can science take you?’.
  • Connect with UNSW Science alumni from a variety of majors and industries. Alumni Chats cover the fields of Healthcare, Consulting & Advisory, Science Communication, Research and Development, Finance & Analytics, and Aviation.
  • Employers such as Pfizer, Quantium, Evidentli, Nutromics, QANTAS Loyalty and more will share career opportunities in their organisations.  
  • Struggling to pick a major? Hear from current students about their journey in selecting their major and how careers link to your choice of major.
