Where could a degree in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths (STEM) take you?
Attend our presentation and hear the journeys of STEM graduates from degree to career.  Panellists include professionals from our three Intelligence Agencies within Defence, as well as from our Science and Technology, Capability and Corporate teams.
You can also find out about cadetships, internships, work experience opportunities and graduate program applications.
  • Ever considered being an Intelligence Analyst? 
  • Would you like to work on the acquisition and sustainment of billon dollar equipment? 
  • Is cutting edge research and innovation of interest to you?
  • Do you love to code or is enterprise architecture more your style?
You could do all this and more as a graduate in the Department of Defence.
Did you know that our civilian workforce (non-uniformed Australian Public Service employees) in Defence is over 17,000 throughout Australia and internationally?  Civilian careers in Defence have no military service obligations or requirements, and provide you with the opportunity to make a difference and to develop your skills in a team committed to Australia's interests and National Security.
If you are currently studying a STEM degree and have a future career in mind, Defence could take you places you never imagined.  A career that gives you a greater sense of purpose? You'll find it at Defence. Definitely.
