I’m currently studying a Bachelor of Engineering Technology in Civil Engineering.
I want to be an engineer because it’s a way to help people, and I enjoy feeling like I understand how things work that may normally be overlooked - it’s like being a part of a secret club.
As the SENZ rep for my tertiary institution, my main goal is to run events that make engineering more approachable and a place to start making connections within the industry.
Engaging with IPENZ as an engineering student allows you to get a feel for what comes after study. It provides a space to extend classroom learning with industry professionals who, in my experience, are always willing to help!
In my spare time I have a part time job, hike and read.
