The Metro Tunnel Industry Immersion Experience is an exciting day of learning activities to build students’ knowledge of the world of work focused around the Metro Tunnel Project being undertaken in Melbourne’s CBD.

Students and teachers will:

  • Take a walking tour to view Town Hall Station construction site where they will learn about the tunnel alignment, tunnel boring and the challenges of managing a large scale infrastructure project in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD.
  • Meet graduates working on the project in an informal setting where students can ask questions about pathways into industry, what the graduates enjoy about their job and what their day on the project involves.
  • Explore the project's visitor centre, Metro Tunnel HQ, where students will have the opportunity to engage with interactive displays and use virtual reality to explore the world of tunnel boring.
  • Spend time creating a profile of their own skills and interests and explore potential roles that might suit them on a large scale project like the Metro Tunnel.

**A full schedule of the day’s activities will be available soon
