Dale Giancono's experience in audio engineering led to a curiosity about the electronics used in his field. Now he’s exploring that interest at RMIT and adding opportunities to his future career path.
Advanced Diploma of Electronics and Communications Engineering
RMIT's reputation for focusing on the practical implementation of technology, including field trips to actual communications companies, makes it a perfect match for me.
I am pragmatic. I am determined. I am candid.
One of the best things about studying my program is that the classes are small enough that you can bounce ideas off your teachers and other students without them getting lost in the crowd. I came to electronic and communications engineering through my previous study and work experience in audio engineering and this set up has been a good way of keeping track of how the two fields relate.
I chose RMIT because I’m a very hands-on person and needed a university that could encourage my interests in the practical side of engineering as well as the theory. RMIT’s reputation for focusing on the practical implementation of technology, including field trips to actual communications companies, makes it a perfect match for me.
I’ve really enjoyed the exposure I’ve gotten to new fields of study and new technologies. I especially enjoyed picking up programming languages like Verilog and C – which have been very interesting and show enormous potential.
The advice I’d give to anyone looking to study my program is to find that part of the program that you’re really interested in and develop your personal side projects. That will help you stay focused and encourage you to keep coming to class.
Once I’ve finished my program, I’m hoping to go to Denmark on exchange and keep building my career as an audio-visual systems designer.
I love what I do because without engineers, the world would not function properly.
