Stuart Miles’ talents lie in understanding and improving complex systems. He now applies this to electrical and electronic engineering and is ready to develop networks and systems for major employers.
Associate Degree in Engineering Technology
My program allows me to develop my own interests and go further with the things that captivate me the most.
I am friendly. I am rational. I am independent
I’m a big fan of video games but find I spend more time thinking about how they function than I do playing them. Thinking about larger and more complex machines, I knew I wanted to be the one making the machines of the future. That made deciding to study electrical and electronic engineering at RMIT an easy choice.
I really enjoyed that my program allows me to go further with the things that captivate me the most. I’ve been able to do a lot of programming and experiment with a range of different processes, from small micro-controllers, to big industry machines, to achieve different outcomes.
My program makes the most of my ability to think logically and visually about how machines work and the programming that goes into controlling them. This and my ability to think in terms of binary output makes studying a lot easier.
As well as my engineering studies, I’ve also been able to supplement my program with courses in psychology, which has been a personal interest of mine for a long time and helps round out my study. Having access to up-to-date journals through the RMIT library has really kept me engaged.
After finishing my current program, I’m hoping to go on to the bachelor program and even the masters. One day I’d like a career in politics but to get there, I’ll need a solid career foundation first.
I love what I do because it allows me to develop useful work skills that will be very useful in a job environment.
