    Objective To deliver a world-class exhibition that promotes the employment opportunities in engineering, celebrates Victorian engineering excellence and advocates the importance of engineering leadership within the profession.

Over the past six years, the expo has promoted to the public the value of engineering by recognising how engineers Make It So in all aspects of everyday living. The expo provides a platform for those seeking employment in engineering and supports of engineering leadership in the community. Over the years the expo has grown from strength to strength to become the ultimate event for corporate and educational representatives who can showcase their engineering capabilities to those seeking career path advice and employment information. The expo has been held at Etihad Stadium for the past four years after it out grew the Melbourne Town Hall.

The secondary target market are high school students looking to pursue a career in engineering, young professionals in the industry that seek assistance with their career choices, teachers/lecturers and corporate bodies who associate or are within the engineering industry.
