I’ve always been really curious about how and why things work. The main thing I want to get out of my degree is to be able to make a difference and improve aspects of living, whether it be on a small local scale or in the wider global community. Through innovation, I want to help people in their day to day lives.
Bachelor of Engineering (Scholar) (Materials)
Nature has spent billions of years perfecting the natural engineering of plants and animals. I am learning so much by studying the claws of birds of prey in order to find new solutions for devices such as prosthetic hands.
Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering
During my degree I went to Sri Lanka to observe firsthand how sustainable technologies were being implemented in a developing economy. Now I've secured a graduate role with Sydney Water and believe it was the practical experience at UOW that gave me the edge.
Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) - Mechanical Engineering
Graduate Program Role, Sydney Water
I went to India with 40K to work on their water impact project. We were the first water group to go over so we were tasked with determining the communities’ needs and wants in terms of water.
The project was very rewarding and an eye opening way to see how engineering can improve communities.
Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) – Environmental Engineering
The Solar Decathlon [won by UOW’s Illawarra Flame House] was an invaluable part of shaping my career and education. Much of what we learned during our degree was applied to the project but you simply can’t get the sort of hands-on experience on the scale that we did.
