Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) graduate
Jared has always had a curiosity about electronics and communication systems. As an engineering student he continued to pursue this interest through a major in electrical and electronic engineering. 'My degree has given me knowledge across many fields of electrical engineering including communication systems, electromagnetics, waves and propagation, practical electronics, power engineering and transmission, digital signal processing and microprocessors.' Jared was able to extend his knowledge and gain valuable global experience in his final year through the completion of a thesis and work placement at Helmut Schmidt Universitat in Hamburg, Germany. He now works as a graduate engineer with multidisciplinary, professional services engineering company, SMEC.
