Student profile – Jesse Vaitkus
Studying science at VCE, I discovered how great physics was -it’s the core of everything. So I decided to study a science degree that would allow me to major in physics.
When I was looking into what kinds of science degrees were available, I found that RMIT seemed to have the most diverse and interesting subjects, many of which couldn’t be found at other universities.
When I first started at RMIT I had a setback of not getting into the degree I wanted, thankfully after much work I received my transfer into “BP247 - Bachelor of Applied Sciences/Bachelor of Nanotechnology”.
A highlight of my studies has been getting to meet so many people who share the same interest in science as me, and being able to learn so much.
If all goes well I’ll finish this double degree and in time go on to do my PhD in physics and work my way to being a successful scientist, hopefully one that is talked about years and years down the track like Einstein, Newton, Hawking or Heisenberg just to name a few.
