A lifelong passion for tech and computers made a Bachelor of Engineering (Computer and Network Engineering) (Honours) the logical course choice for Liwang Chia.
Bachelor of Engineering (Computer and Network Engineering) (Honours)
I would like to walk down the street, spot a person using a product that I was involved in and think to myself, “yeah, I made that”.
For as long as I can remember I’ve been attracted to the world of tech – especially any and all things computer related – so I showed up with a relentless desire to learn and make a difference in the world. It’s a career path I’m passionate about and RMIT has made sure I’m surrounded by passionate people.
It’s not uncommon to see me studying at odd hours of the night in many of RMIT’s lab facilities. I spend so much time in them it’s almost as if it’s my second home! That’s what happens when you love your course and your university provides the facilities that let you immerse yourself completely.
When I was researching universities and deciding which would be the best fit for me, I considered many factors but the most important was definitely the internship/industry work placement aspect of the degree. It gave me the confidence of knowing I’d be graduating job-ready and valuable to employers.
Students have to do 12 weeks of industry-based work experience to graduate, and I believe it gives students an advantage over other recent graduates who may not have had similar placements or opportunities.
