I am currently studying a double degree in Engineering (Honours) (Mechatronic) and Computer Science (Data Science) .

I chose to study at UQ because of its unique selection of majors and degrees that enabled me to choose the course I am passionate and interested about to learn.

I chose to study my discipline as it is an all-rounder in terms of disciplines. Looking into the future and the technological advancements, I am passionate about automation and data science. I hope to lead into a career where I can learn every day and solve problems that have been gruelling minds for decades or maybe unknown to us as of now.

What advice do you have for prospective students interested in studying engineering, architecture, computer science and/or information technology at UQ?

My advice to prospective students would be to first decide your strengths and weaknesses, then your interests, and finally a motivation for a career goal in which you are passionate about. This process, I believe, will ensure that the student is satisfied with their decision in their course and learn something that they are passionate about. Even if the student faces challenges within the courses in the degree, this advice will ensure that they are motivated to never give up and always keep their head straight because of their eagerness to get to their goal.

What is your favourite place on campus?

My favourite places on campus would be the Food Court and the Great Court, as they are the two places I take a break from studying and socialise with friends!
