It was the high level of industry involvement and the opportunity to do a double degree that led Anthony England to engineering at Monash University.
“The general first year of Engineering at Monash University, which gives you time to experience many Engineering streams before making your decision also influenced my choice.”
“I had always been solid when it came to maths and sciences throughout school. Engineering was an opportunity to utilise these skills and develop them so that they can be used throughout my career on a range of projects.”
When the time came for Anthony to choose his field of study, he decided that civil engineering was the right choice for him. Civil engineering encompasses a number of specialty subjects, including geotechnics, water systems engineering and structures.
Not only is Anthony dedicated to his studies, but he is also involved with co-curricular activities.
“I am involved in the Leadership in a Technological Environment (LITE) program and I was the director of events for the newly formed Association of Civil Engineering Students in 2011.”
“Monash University gives you flexibility in your degree and has a broad range of co-curricular activities to participate in. Engineering is a difficult course, however the support is there to get you through it, and I firmly believe it is one of the most satisfying degrees to complete as it gives you skills you can apply in the workplace and throughout your career.”
