ARJUN XAVIER SPEAKS: As a kid, the best part of getting a new toy would be to take it apart and find out how it worked. The challenge of finding creative solutions to practical problems intrigued me to further my interests as an engineer. I chose RMIT for its international industry recognition and for the ability to progress from TAFE to University.
