Engineering is a cooperative profession and the people I have worked alongside at university have enhanced the experience for me, I look forward to our paths crossing during our careers. 

I have really enjoyed my time studying Civil Engineering at UWA. The campus is beautiful and I was fortunate enough to stay next door - living in residency at St George's College for the first three years of my degree. I also appreciated UWA's decision to switch the course structure from a Bachelor of Engineering to a general Bachelor of Science, majoring in Engineering Science, before specialisation in a Master of Professional Engineering. The generalised Bachelor degree allowed me to experience a small amount of all engineering disciplines, which enabled me to make a more informed decision when choosing my specialisation for Masters.

I chose Civil Engineering due to my interest in structural behaviour, and after my first year of Masters I directed my focus toward Offshore and Subsea Engineering. This field particularly captured my interest and I have been fortunate enough to secure a graduate position on Woodside's Subsea and Pipeline Engineering team.

My advice to aspiring engineering students is to take advantage of the new course structure and broadening units in order to explore different engineering disciplines and establish a firm understanding of what you are passionate about. As well as this, I recommend getting to know your peers.
