Ishraj S. Inderjeet has a long list of awards, achievements and accolades to his name, and many of them stem from his time studying for a Bachelor of Engineering (Aerospace Engineering) (Honours).
Bachelor of Engineering (Aerospace Engineering) (Honours)
For as long as I can remember I’ve dreamt of going to space, and live every day of my life planning how to get there.
When I was a child my first piece of Lego was given to me on a plane by an air hostess, and it made me think like an engineer: “It would only be complete if the right piece was fitted at the right place."
Aerospace engineering combines that principle of engineering with the wonder of flight and space. It’s not easy to get a job in the space sector – especially not as an astronaut – but this course opens up opportunities in that difficult field.
At RMIT I have had the chance to lead a number of aerospace activities and organisations, and I have also built a strong network of world-famous astronauts, eminent aerospace professors, CEOs, Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and founders of various aerospace companies, such as Elon Musk, Robert Zubrin, Buzz Aldrin, Bill Nye, amongst others.
As a recent graduate in Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering with Honours from RMIT University, including an exchange year at Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands, I hope to combine the engineering, management and entrepreneurship skills I have acquired to establish a career as a space entrepreneur. Or as an astronaut.
