Forging links between schools and industry

The Engineering Link Group started in 1994, launching with a three-day camp for Year 11 students. Since then we have expanded to offer programs to year 11 and 12 students and their teachers throughout Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. In 2014, we ran more than 16 programs including our overseas immersion tour to China.


Greg Millican

CEO and Operational Director

Greg is a high school teacher with more than 20 years’ experience and a passion for teaching mathematics and physics. Greg helped form the Engineering Link Group and initially balanced his time between a full-time teaching load and delivering the Group’s programs. Since 2013, Greg has dedicated his full energy to the Engineering Link Group.

Paul Richards

Chairman and Operational Director

Paul is the inspiration and driving force of the Engineering Link Group. He started the Group in 1994 with help from Greg and despite retiring from teaching biology in 2001 he continues to work tirelessly to engage young students in science and maths.


The Engineering Link Group partners with universities, industry bodies and businesses to provide engaging and unique learning opportunities.

TELG have had a long association with Engineers Australia as an industry partner, strategic advisor and sponsor of our various education programs. We work in partnership with universities to meet both institution’s goals of increasing the number of informed students studying engineering, which in turn has made a significant difference in the number of quality graduates in the three states we work in.
