- The Honeywell Engineering Summer School (HESS) takes place in December each year, and brings together 100 final year high school students all interested in pursuing engineering as a career.
- In past years students have come from all over NSW and the ACT, including regional and city centres such as Broken Hill, Tumbarumba and Inverell.
- Throughout the week-long program, students are introduced to five universities, including University of Sydney, University of New South Wales, University of Western Sydney, University of Technology Sydney, and University of Wollongong.
- The students are also taken behind the scenes of some major engineering companies and projects, to see real engineers at work in society.
- HESS is a great experience, full of practical engineering activities, with lots of fun activities as well as evening social programs organised for students at various locations.
- The students board for the week at Sydney University Village.
- HESS is an initiative supported by Honeywell, Engineers Australia, Sydney Division, NSW Engineering Universities and participating Rotary Districts.
- The 2006 Honeywell Engineering Summer School is being held 3 – 8 December.
