"Engineering students can be at the forefront of ensuring the planet is in good shape into the future. I enrolled in the degree to learn how to develop solutions."

Jake Rozyn

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Civil Engineering graduate

I chose a civil engineering degree because my grandpa is an engineer and he inspired me to learn the discipline and also I believe that engineering advances society.

My favourite aspect about being a civil engineering student is the freedom at university, meeting new people and challenging myself to see what I can achieve.

The main things I like about Southern Cross University are the brand new facilities here in engineering and the support network that you have if you are struggling in mathematics or writing essays, there's always someone to help out.

My advice would be to just start studying something. The sooner you start the sooner you're exposing yourself to different people and different aspects of life and you start to figure it out what you enjoy and where you want to go.
