Nadhila Noor has been recognised for excellence in her electrical and electronic engineering degree by winning the Telstra University Challenge.
Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical and Electronic Engineering) (Honours)
If you feel you need to improve on your technical skills, RMIT is definitely the place for you. You’ll meet people with the same goals who will make your university experience amazing.
I was drawn to study engineering as I really looked up to my father who is an engineer. I also have a love for physics and maths which pushed me to choose engineering over other fields of study.
I decided to study at RMIT as it is a well-known practical-based university. Working in a male dominated industry, I feel that it’s important to have strong technical skills. Plus the central location of RMIT in the middle of Melbourne was very appealing.
The academic highlight of my degree has been working on a team project and winning the 2015 Telstra University Challenge. Our team was called Medical Engineering Database Solutions (MEDS). We developed ECGx and Medibase, which acquires electrocardiogram (ECG) traces directly from ECG machines and transmits the data to a central cloud-based database to be shared securely on any internet-enabled device. It is hoped that this technology could help save lives through improving the data that doctors have when patients arrive by ambulance.
After I graduate, I look forward to entering the workforce as I am eager to apply my engineering skills that I have learnt. I am planning to return and work in Malaysia to give back to my country. I hope I can make a positive impact in Malaysia’s growth to become a fully developed country.
