Thomas Ireland

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)

As part of his degree, Thomas did a work placement at Gilmour Space Technologies—an aerospace start-up based on Queensland's Gold Coast—which turned into a full‑time role. He's now a software engineer and part of a team designing and building a rocket set to deploy commercial payloads by 2022. 'I was drawn to the possibility of using my knowledge to better the world in one way or another, so decided to apply for the Bachelor of Engineering at Griffith.'
