Combining commerce and engineering: Kisal Weeratunge

Kisal followed the Bachelor of Commerce through to the Master of Engineering (Structural), a pathway that is allowing him to navigate both the technical and managerial aspects of engineering.

“The main benefit I found was that doing a Commerce undergraduate beforehand allowed me to really expand my options. Within engineering, whilst there are technical roles there are also managerial roles.

I chose to do structural engineering because with so many infrastructure projects currently happening in Melbourne, it’s something that does really excite me. To have the opportunity to directly be involved in that is something I was really looking forward to. “

Kisal has taken an active role in pursuing opportunities to gain real-world experience, recently working on the Level Crossing Removal Project during his internship.

“What I’ve learnt at university is really applicable to my job.”
