Join the next generation of engineering and technology professionals

Ignite your passion. 
Ignite your career.
It all STEMs from you.

Ignite was created to empower women studying Technology or Engineering.

What does this mean for YOU?

You will be mentored by industry experts – gaining invaluable skills, along with exposure to cutting edge engineering and technology projects. You will have the opportunity to make connections that set you up for success. ​Ignite is a launching pad for your career and a potential pathway into our Graduate Program.

​And you won't just be stuck in an office all day, either. The program includes what we call ‘Asset Tours', taking you out to see some of our most awe-inspiring projects. Experience what it's like to be inside a tunnel, beneath a bridge, or go straight to where all the action happens – inside our Traffic Control Room.​

​At Transurban, we love to learn from the great minds around us. We ask questions, share knowledge and test ideas, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible.​​

  • What’s involved?

    As part of this unpaid mentorship, participants will work with mentors for 35 hours over 8 weeks, located across Sydney, Brisbane or Melbourne. You will receive development support and guidance through various professional growth opportunities, such as networking with some of the best in the business and developing connections with industry professionals. We manage and deliver some of Australia’s biggest infrastructure projects, and as an Ignite mentoring program participant, you’ll learn about these projects first-hand.

    We know everyone is different – with diverse interests and career ambitions, so we’ll tailor your mentoring program experience to suit your goals. The Ignite program is a great opportunity to get a taste of a large infrastructure organisation – it will help set you up for future success as you complete your degree.
