I initially was leaning more towards a finance role, as I enjoyed this discipline in my undergrad. I have however, become increasingly passionate about future transport, mobility and automation. I would love to work in this space – anything to do with service design, intelligent mobility, UX, connected and automated vehicles and innovation design engineering really excites me.Adrienne Koor
Master of Engineering (Mechanical with Business)
Bachelor of Commerce
I recently completed an internship at Aurecon. The internship has definitely made me career ready. Having a new insight into the latest technologies used, I am able to tailor my learning so that I have the appropriate foundations to keep up to date with industry requirements. What I enjoyed most about the experience was the sense of being able to see the connection between what I have learned and how it applies in industry.Lavannyemesha Sivaguranathan
