"There is no other course in Victoria that looks at electrical and mechanical engineering, then adds in biomechanics and technology for human applications. During my studies I completed work placements at 2Mar Robotics, where I developed my love of robotics, and at Enable Development, where I learnt about tech-based solutions to accessibility problems faced by people with disabilities."
