Greta Vella chose to complete a double degree in Applied Science and Business Management so that she would have the right skills to ensure important science innovations make their way into our lives.
Bachelor of Science (Applied Science)/Bachelor of Business (Management)
A highlight for me has been a three-month vacation scholarship at CSIRO where I contributed to the field of science communication.
I've always been fascinated by what occurs at the atomic scale and how these discoveries can be applied to the larger scheme of things.
As a person who values the integration of new scientific and innovative solutions to everyday life, I was prompted to undertake a double degree at RMIT in science and business.
From my first visit during Open Day, it became evident that RMIT had a unique energy and vibrancy. From the incredible facilities, to the wealth of passionate faces and practical location, I knew I would fit right in with what RMIT had to offer their students.
A real highlight for me has been the diverse relationships I've formed with students and teachers alike. It's great to know that support is continually provided and it's comforting to see friendly faces that stay with you through your journey at RMIT.
RMIT offers fantastic facilities open to student use. The stand out for me has been the range of new study spaces available for students, both for independent and group work. The vast number of rooms has really helped me stay productive and it’s great that coffee is always nearby!
My program equipped me with crucial communication and problem solving skills needed for the real-world.
A highlight for me has been a three-month vacation scholarship at CSIRO where I contributed to the field of science communication. This was a fantastic experience as I was surrounded by many passionate people and had the opportunity to publish important research findings on a range of communication channels, including CSIRO's Facebook and Twitter.
My advice for future students is to really give it your all and push yourself outside your comfort zone. One of the greatest experiences for me has been reflecting on my time at RMIT and realising that I'm more capable than I first thought. Also; make sure you also check out the snooze lounges and the balconies in Building 80!
My dream job post-university is to be in a role that's at the forefront of commercialising the latest scientific and technological discoveries.
