A desire to make a difference and develop something that can be used every day by people around the world, is motivating Francesco Fedele to study a degree in automotive.
Bachelor of Engineering (Automotive Engineering) (Honours)
I always wanted a career that will let me leave a mark on the world. I now have the confidence that one day I will be able to help develop something, big or small, that will be used every day by people across the globe.
Studying automotive engineering allows me to apply my interest in physics in a more practical and tangible way.
I decided to study at RMIT because of its practical focus, industry links and opportunities for overseas work placements through the RIEERP program.
I’ve really enjoyed the focus on project work, which has given me the chance to work with others who share similar interests – it’s much better than just learning theory through lectures and tutorials.
Many of my lecturers have industry experience from some of the world’s leading companies. They use real-life examples to link what we are learning to how it would be used by engineers in industry.
In the next few years, I hope to do a year-long overseas placement and complete my degree. Ultimately I’d like to work as an engineer in the automotive industry in Europe, preferably in the design and development of innovative technology for commercial vehicle powertrains.
