Bright young minds focus on the jobs of the future


The Aerospace Futures conference kicked off in Adelaide today bringing hundreds of university graduates and young professionals together with leaders of the nation’s space and defence industries.

The annual event, hosted by the Australian Youth Aerospace Association, will expose our brightest young minds to high-tech job opportunities in these growing sectors.

Participants will have the chance to network with potential future employers, while a panel of experts and industry leaders will discuss Australia’s developing aerospace and space industries.

As South Australia is fast-becoming a hub for new technology and innovation, young people are being encouraged to consider careers in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

The booming space industry will also be the focus of the world’s largest space conference, the 68th International Astronautical Congress, to be held in Adelaide this September.
