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.


RMIT’s 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 RMIT’s 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.


RMIT’s 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.
