Dale Giancono talks about what it’s like to study at RMIT
I worked in a technician role for 3 years, and I always found myself hungry for more knowledge.
RMIT has a reputation of hands-on learning.
For me, engineering is being smart, whether it is designing a product to save time, money, or effort.
[Screen title] Why did you start with the advanced diploma?
The Advanced Diploma provides an alternative pathway to the Bachelor of Engineering.
The main difference between the diploma and degree was the way the content was delivered.
Much of that content is taught in a more one-on-one environment with the teachers.
[Screen title] What’s been the best part so far?
The highlight of the program for me wass getting to work on a variety of projects that I could take a keen interest in.
My favourite project was getting to code a 24-hour digital clock on an FPGA development board.
It was really cool to get to use such an advanced piece of technology.
[Screen title] What’s next for you?
Hopefully, within a year, I'll do a 6-month exchange program at DTU in Denmark, where I can follow up on interests I have in the field of acoustics, and beyond that, just getting good grades and my degree.
Personally, I think if you are excited and passionate about a particular topic, the studying becomes very easy.
