Engineering (Honours)
(Mechanical and Aerospace) /
Master of Engineering

Why did you choose to study your discipline?

From a very young age, I have been wanting to be a car designer, performance cars especially. The knowledge offered in the Mechanical Engineering discipline are all essential for the job: vehicle dynamics, body structures and materials, thermodynamics and heat transfer… The Aerospace Engineering portion would take some of that knowledge to a deeper level, like fluid dynamics and aerospace materials, not to mention the discipline also provides me with more employability options.

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

It is extremely important to make good friends! On the short term, it is very efficient and motivational to study with your mates, and on the long term, you can form life-long professional connections. Also, it is essential to not leave any content behind every week, otherwise it is very difficult and stressful to catch up on everything right before the exams.

What do you love most about your degree?

I absolutely love the hand-on engineering opportunities in my degree. I get the chance to do experiments to see how classroom concepts work in real life, and build all kinds of fun machines which give me tastes of my professional career; furthermore, the professors and tutors are all very knowledgeable and passionate about their work. This inspires me to follow their examples and chase my most desired career.
