Having moved to Canberra from Dunedin in New Zealand, third year Bachelor of Engineering student Aneeza's interest in finding solutions to, and fixing problems sparked her interest in studying engineering at ANU.
“I chose ANU because it’s a world renowned university. I was attracted to the flexibility that the Bachelor of Engineering provides - exposing you to range of engineering majors in the first few semesters of your degree that allows you to make an informed decision when it comes to selecting your major. Also, the smaller classes allow for more interactive learning with your peers and academics.”
The unique interdisciplinary nature of the ANU systems engineering degree prepares students to design, analyse, and manage complex interdisciplinary systems or projects. This interdisciplinary approach transcends software, electrical and mechanical engineering, enabling our graduates to look at the big picture, and work across teams. These degrees are designed in-line with industry demand, and taught at other world class universities including the University of Cambridge and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
As a student, Aneeza’s days are varied. She attends lectures, labs and society club meetings, relishing in the experience to meet new people from different cultural backgrounds and relaxing and catching up in the yard outside the engineering building.
“If you’re a new student starting at ANU, get involved in societies and clubs early on in the year, it’s a great way of meeting people.”
Aneeza found the move from NZ to Canberra smooth as her hometown is very similar to Canberra.
“Canberra has great events that happen throughout the year, especially Enlighten. If you’re living in the city, everything is around the corner from the ANU!”
Once she’s completed her degree at ANU, Aneeza would like to travel, and establish herself as a professional in a management or consultant position.
