Advisian sponsors the Indigenous Australia Engineering Summer School

Indigenous Australia Engineering Summer School

Advisian is a major sponsor of the Indigenous Australia Engineering Summer School (IAESS) and provides opportunities for Indigenous high school students to participate in a week of engineering activities.

Now in its 17th year, the IAESS is an annual event established by Engineering Aid Australia. It provides Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students from around Australia the opportunity to experience and learn about a career in engineering. Prior to attending the IAESS, many of these students had never been exposed to the industry or considered engineering as a profession.

Indigenous Australian Undergraduate Scholarship Program

Indigenous Australian Undergraduate Scholarship Program

To address the under-representation of Indigenous Australians in the engineering profession, Advisian runs the Indigenous Australian Undergraduate Scholarship Program. Started in 2011, the program provides the chosen applicant with a $9,000 study allowance during the semester and a paid work experience position over the university holidays, as part of the Advisian Undergraduate Futures Program. 

Advisian’s Indigenous Australian Undergraduate Scholarship is supported by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations Indigenous Cadetship Support scheme. Read more in our Futures Program/Undergraduate Development page.

Partnering with UTS Shopfront community program and UTS Business School

Advisian advisors will be donating their skills, insights and expertise in mentoring a group of UTS Masters of Business Administration (MBA) students on a number of not-for-profit community organisations.

Advisian mentors will work with the community organisation to define the project brief prior to semester, mentor the students during semester, and assist with implementation or follow up after semester concludes.

Supporting the local community

Supporting the local community

Each year, Advisian supports various fundraising charity initiatives across Australia and Asia.

In 2013, staff from our Perth branch raised more than $4,100 to help various charities, including the Motor Neurone Disease Association, Princess Margaret Hospital for Children, the RSPCA and the Australian Red Cross.

Seven employees from our Sydney branch raised $1,000 through their participation in the MS Sydney to the Gong Bike Ride. Also in Sydney, 50 Advisian staff members and their families participated in the Sydney City2Surf and raised $2,400 for the Leukaemia Foundation.

Employees from our Melbourne branch participated in the Run for Kids charity event, which involved a 5.5km or 15km walk/run through Melbourne’s CBD. Our team of 16 joined 35,000 runners, and raised $555 for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal. The event raised a record-breaking $2 million for sick children.

Staff from our Brisbane branch braved the winter chill to participate in the annual Brissie to the Bay ride. Our team of five raised an impressive $3,720 towards the fight against multiple sclerosis.
Supporting transport innovation research

Supporting transport innovation research

Advisian sponsors the Research Centre for Integrated Transport Innovation (rCITI) – a University of New South Wales strategic initiative launched in November 2011. The initiative investigates sustainable approaches to transport infrastructure and operations, through extensive liaison with industry and government.

Key achievements for the Centre include signing an Umbrella Deed with the NSW Government Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) and Memoranda of Understanding with car share company GoGet and Better Place, an electric car charge network; and a 2013 Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Infrastructure, Equipment and Facilities (LIEF) Grant for a world-first driving simulation laboratory, the Travel Choice Simulation Laboratory (TRACSLab).

The TRACSLab facility will observe collective travel choice in a realistic lab environment, with a unique focus on travel choice, networked interaction and strong teaming. The lab’s findings will support a new generation of transport analysis techniques for emerging issues such as sustainability, reliability and intelligent transport systems.
