After studying an engineering degree in India, Joy Purohit decided to increase his specialist knowledge in manufacturing by studying the Master of Engineering (Manufacturing).
Master of Engineering (Manufacturing)
I would definitely advise students to undertake postgrad studies as this will help them to work, focus, think and relate to specific topics which they are really passionate about.
After completing a Bachelor of Engineering (Production) at Mumbai University, I was very keen on learning more about these concepts at an advanced level.
I was looking for a program that had the perfect balance of manufacturing and management skills which is what RMIT offered. Also I was truly impressed with the good reputation RMIT has in the engineering field.
The highlight of my studies was my final semester research project based on the concept of a very interesting and upcoming manufacturing discipline of 3D printing. Another highlight has been the supportive staff and my professors and mentors who have always inspired and encouraged me to give my best.
During my studies I undertook an internship two days a week at a company named ANCA Pty. Ltd. This company is a CNC manufacturer that is all about automated machining, giving me thorough knowledge of the area that I’m passionate about. This was an awesome experience and I was lucky to have great mentors guiding me through different projects. It gave me an opportunity to understand and relate the actual industry practice to the textbook knowledge. Luckily my internship has led to a role with the company where I am now working as a Junior Manufacturing Engineer.
In the future I’d also like to complete a PhD in the field of 3D printing.
My dream job would be related to taking 3D printing to the next level of advancement making life easier.
