    Aliesha Smith

    Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)

    Studying engineering has been amazing. I get so excited and passionate about this course that it reminds me why I’ve done it. I’ve met amazing people and had heaps of opportunities. Working on projects and problem-solving and doing it for yourself, is the best thing about the course. You won’t get that anywhere else.

    Dane Lennon

    Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)

    I wanted a career change after 4 years in the ADF and began studying engineering at JCU. JCU provided the support I needed to make the change and the industry exposure to ensure I had a job at the end. The uni familiarisation workshops aided the transition and introduced me to mates I still have today.
