Video Transcript: Mechanical Engineering


Hello my name is Scott Smith and I'm the Dean of Engineering at Southern Cross University.

Our engineering programs blend theory and practice and they are delivered in state-of-the-art facilities. Our teachers, who are drawn from around the world, bring extensive research knowledge and practical know-how into the classroom. Our students are supported by extensive resources including a dynamic engineering student society that organises a range of professional development and social activities.

Hello my name is Ricardo Vasquez Padilla and I am the course coordinator of the Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering at Southern Cross University. My research area is on concentrated solar energy and advanced power cycles. Here at SCU, mechanical engineering is working on the different aspects of the next generation of solar towers and also the integration of renewable energy and conventional energy sources.


Hello my name is Ahmed Abbott. I am a lecturer in mechanical engineering and I am working with composites material. The advanced composites laboratory at SCU is a technology, research and innovation centre. It takes emerging science and matures it to a point where industry can use it. We are building the bridge between research and many industries. Industries such as aerospace, automotive, marine, rail and things like oil and gas.
