A desire to leave the world a better place led James Tetlow to postgraduate studies in sustainable energy. He’s now working as a Project Director for the Sustainable Urban Precincts Program at RMIT.
Master of Engineering (Sustainable Energy)
I have always had an interest in sustainability as I have a desire to leave the world a better place.
I chose to study at RMIT because it was a local course which was flexible and tailored to what I wanted to do. The highlight of my studies has been the genuine, engaging and provocative discussions that I have had with staff and fellow students.
During my studies I’ve gained technical knowledge of engineering and sustainable energy and government policy. I’ve also taken part in two projects with organisations outside of the university - both projects seeking to convert organic waste to energy. They were excellent examples of the real-world application of theoretical skills.
I currently work for Honeywell as Project Director for the Sustainable Urban Precincts Program at RMIT.
I love what I do because I’m helping take things in the right direction. In the future I hope to remain in the sustainability sector, ideally in renewable energy or waste recovery.
