Design tour in partnership with Engineers Without Borders Australia

Simon Pursell, Mechanical Engineer, Sydney

Simon has been awarded a Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade New Colombo Plan Scholarship to take part in a two-week, human-centred design tour. He will be travelling to Timor L’este in partnership with Engineers Without Borders Australia.

The tour will focus on sustainable health delivery, technologies and gender. Simon will visit health facilities and discuss health programs to gain an understanding of opportunities and challenges in delivering health care to rural communities. In conjunction with NGOs and university academics, Simon will put forward recommendations to community members regarding long term solutions to such challenges.
