After completing a degree in civil engineering, Felicity Stewart decided to learn about more complex structural engineering problems through the Master of Engineering (Structures and Forensics).
Master of Engineering (Structures and Forensics)
I love civil engineering because every project is different and has its own challenges that I get to solve.
In high school I really enjoyed mathematics which was one reason I decided to study an undergraduate degree in civil engineering. I had heard from numerous sources that RMIT’s engineering programs was hands on and had lots of project experience. I learn through doing, so RMIT’s approach worked well with that. The location is also convenient.
I really enjoyed the structural engineering subjects that I had completed in my undergraduate degree at RMIT and that motivated me to want to learn more, see more and do more in that field.
In my final year of undergraduate studies, I heard about the postgraduate program focusing on structures and forensics. So after graduating from my undergraduate degree, I decided to study the master’s program as it provided with the opportunity to be exposed to more complex structural engineering problems.
There were so many highlights in my postgraduate studies including getting to design a 100 storey building, learning about forensic analysis of existing structures, getting to complete a research project using a range software packages, learning about earthquake engineering and learning the mathematics behind structural engineering analysis packages.
I am now working in a graduate role at an engineering consulting firm. In the future I hope to develop myself into a successful senior structural engineer.
