VISUAL: Colin Kestell speaking to camera standing in between booths and tables.
COLIN KESTELL SPEAKS: Hi. My name's Colin Kestell. I'm the Deputy Dean for Learning and Teaching, School of Engineering RMIT. And we're at EnGenius today.
VISUAL: back of students walking through exhibition. Someone explaining while looking at laptop. Floorplan of exhibition, people talking at booths. Close up of machines and technology.
COLIN KESTELL SPEAKS: Essentially it's their final year project, where they're given a realistic engineering challenge. And they have to rise to that challenge, and come up with an engineered solution.

TEXT ON SCREEN: Paul Markwick General Manager SAGE Automation
VISUAL: Paul Markwick facing the camera standing in front of a group of people
PAUL MARKWICK SPEAKS: Well it's always interesting to see what the students are coming up with, how they're innovating, because hiring graduates is part of how we become a better business. I think smart graduates, they bring a new dynamic to your team. They look at problems in a different way than how engineers that have been in the systems for a number of years look at them.
They bring that energy, that enthusiasm, and perhaps something out of the box which I great.

TEXT ON SCREEN: Daniel Cheek Engineer Schnider Electric
VISUAL: Daniel Cheek looking at camera in hallway
DANIEL CHEEK SPEAKS: Saw some really good, intelligent engineers. And them telling me their ideas and their pitches, and I could see how they could fit into our workplace. Seeing how they pitch their ideas to real world engineers is really good and really informative.
VISUAL: while Daniel speaks; close up of switches, machines and wires. Students talking. Back to Daniel finishing talking.
TEXT ON SCREEN: Peter Wassouf Patent Attorney, Phillip Ormonde Fitzpatrick
VISUAL: Peter facing camera standing in a hallway.
PETER WASSOUF SPEAKS: I've seen a lot of bright ideas and a lot of innovation in how to make existing technology more efficient.
VISUAL: while Peter talks: close up of Lego construction with wires, drones on table, model airplane hanging.
TEXT ON SCREEN: Amanda Rogers, Corporate Engagement Manager Engineers Australia
VISUAL: Amanda speaking to camera
AMANDA ROGERS SPEAKS: And the commitment to the students, the diversity of the students, it was wonderful to see so many female engineers here today. So it's a terrific event and congratulations to everyone involved.
VISUAL: students posing for photo with Colin Kestell and certificate of recognition. Back to Amanda talking.
VISUAL: Colin Kestell in between booths and tables facing the camera.
COLIN KESTELL SPEAKS: There's a lot of great opportunity to get a lot of great young talent here. One of the judges was saying to me that he was chatting to some students that have solved his problem, and he was amazed because he's had engineers working on this problem for over a year and these students had gone about it different way and they solved his problem. So he spent a lot of time chatting with them, just out of sheer amazement.
It's been a huge success. In all sincerity, I think they've all been winners today.
