HO CHI MINH CITY
Eminent engineers impress future students
Prospective students, who visit RMIT Open Day on Sunday, 8 August, will have the
opportunity to meet renowned leaders in engineering and learn more about what
they do at the Engineering Industry Speaker Presentations.
High profile companies taking part in this initiative include Boeing presenting on
Aerospace Engineering, SAGE talking about Advanced Manufacturing and
Mechatronics, and Auto CRC presenting on Advanced Automotive Technology.
RMITs Pro Vice-Chancellor, Science, Engineering and Health, and Vice-President
Professor Peter Coloe, said that science, technology, maths and engineering
account for half of all jobs in Australia.
For high school students facing tough decisions about what to study, these
industry talks with engineering leaders will help to highlight the wide range of
science and engineering careers available, Professor Coloe said.
Strong links and collaboration with industry provides RMIT students with practical
local and international experience before graduating.
For example, one of our Aerospace Engineering graduates, Jason Seris, who took
part in RMITs International Industry Experience and Research Program while he
studied here, now works with Rolls-Royce as part of its North American Leadership
Development program the first Australian to do so, he said.
RMITs Open Day also includes information sessions and tours of facilities.
Current students and staff will be available to discuss study options and career
pathways with future students and their families.
