The Bandalang Residency is a residential visit at the newly established ANU Bandalang Indigenous Engineering Design Studio in the School of Engineering on Ngunnawal and Ngambri land.

Residents will be paid and otherwise supported to practice, research and engage in educational development that contributes to changing perspectives on engineering in Australia and more broadly.

This is an opportunity to help shape the conversations in honouring Indigenous science and technology in engineering at ANU and in Australia.
