Liam

Bachelor of Engineering (Hons)/Business Administration '19

An ANU engineering degree is recognised all around the world so the opportunities to work both in and outside of Australia are endless.

Wanting to pursue his passion for technology with his interest in leadership and management, second year student Liam is undertaking a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Bachelor of Business Administration. 

Having lived in Canberra his whole life, Liam’s decision to study at ANU was an easy one.

“I was lucky enough to grow up in the city that is home to Australia’s top ranked university, so choosing ANU for me was as easy decision. The unique engineering degree offered at ANU is perfect for me because I am able to study a variety of engineering disciplines while learning how to manage and combine these together into an interacting engineering system.”

ANU prides itself on small class sizes, and the opportunity for students to work closely with academics. “This semester, two of my lecturers know me on a first name basis, which is a credit to ANU and the academics that take such an interest in their students,” says Liam.  

As a student at ANU, Liam has immersed himself in a range of professional development opportunities on offer at the university, and student life. Liam recommends that students should get involved in different clubs and societies, study hard, travel as much as they can, and most importantly enjoy university life.

“ANU values the importance of the university experience as well the university education. ANU has the resources and the ability to support you in whatever you are interested in doing whether it is studying, traveling, playing sport or getting involved in clubs and societies. The first club I joined was the Engineering Student Association (ESA) and I believe that this is an essential group to be a part of if you’re studying engineering.”

Earlier this year, Liam was selected to participate in an Engineers Without Borders (EWB) Design Summit trip to rural community in the southwest of India.

“During this time we built relationships and connected with the local people with the hope of improving their lives through the use of technology and engineering. This experience changed my entire perception of engineering and made me challenge our intentions and hopes for the technology we are designing.”

Liam’s experience with EWB has sparked his interest in travelling the world and working overseas after completing his degree.

“An ANU engineering degree is recognised all around the world so the opportunities to work both in and outside of Australia are endless.”
