Moving from an advanced diploma into a degree in electrical and electronic engineering, Michael Chrisp is on his way to his dream job as an engineer in Germany.
Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) (Honours), Advanced Diploma in Electronics and Communications Engineering
I decided to study at RMIT because of the excellent pathway opportunities.
From a young age I have been interested in electronics and have always been curious in how things work. I have always loved taking things apart.
I decided to study at RMIT because of the excellent pathway opportunities. I started my studies in the Advanced Diploma of Electronics & Communications Engineering, then continued on to my current degree. I’m really impressed by the great lab equipment, the breadth of courses and the career connections both locally and internationally.
A highlight of my studies has been being able to look at complex systems such as automobiles, computers and aeroplanes, and know exactly what is happening to make them work.
My degree prepared me for industry through work experience programs. This allowed me to have a real world experience before I finished studying, so I was never thrown in the deep end. My tutors had spent a lot of time in the workforce themselves, so they were able to provide lots of practical insights into industry.
In the future, I hope to do a placement overseas through RMIT's International Industry Experience and Research Program. I’m also excited to be able to put the skills I’ve learnt to practice in the workforce.
My dream job is to work as an engineer in Germany, designing and creating innovative products that change and develop the world.
