Elliott Kuhlmann hopes his practical studies in electrical engineering at RMIT will help him contribute to solving the world energy crisis.
Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical Engineering) (Honours)
I wanted a practical environment where I could experience the real application and behaviour of electrical systems, rather than only learning the theory.
Ever since I was little, I wanted to be an inventor. I always loved mathematics and art, so to me, engineering was the perfect bridge between these disciplines.
When looking at where to study, I wanted a practical environment where I could experience the real application and behaviour of electrical systems, rather than only learning the theory. RMIT promised this, and has delivered with a highly experimental learning experience.
I’ve had many opportunities to explore creative solutions to problems. I’ve loved being given free rein to develop completely unique inventions, for example the creation of a wireless voltage sensing bracelet.
The expansive engineering facilities at RMIT have been crucial in my learning experience. These facilities have experimentally verified all the theory I have studied, and have given me a crucial understanding of the true nature of electrical systems.
After finishing my studies, I hope to become a respected member and leader within the high voltage power transmission industry. I hope to be someone who contributes meaningfully to a solution to the world’s current energy crisis.
