Kerry Phillips has always been excited by aviation, moving interstate to study a double degree in aviation and management at RMIT.
Be more than the student who comes to class and leaves. Volunteer at events, talk to your lectures, attend functions, join a club or sporting team and prepare to make lifelong friends.
I’ve always had a passion for aviation. As a child, I would search the sky for the Westpac rescue helicopter at the beach.
I moved interstate to study at RMIT because it’s the highest rated university for aerospace and aviation research.
I’m attracted to this industry as the potential career paths are constantly changing and adapting to new technology and research.
The highlight so far has been the incredible lecturers and tutors. Their knowledge and guidance continues to surprise my friends and family. I know I’ll have their support well beyond graduation.
RMIT prepares us for the real world by offering a program that is taught by proven industry professionals who use real-life examples.
I hope to complete a Global Intensive at the Korean Aerospace University and I’m currently working at AusJet Aviation Group.
My advice for future students is: refuse to be oblivious! Be more than the student who comes to class and leaves. Volunteer at events, talk to your lectures, attend functions, join a club or sporting team and prepare to make lifelong friends.
I hope to work for a company involved in space commercialisation because I believe there’s so much to be gained – scientifically and economically – in the journey to make space accessible.
