Brodie Chan

Griffith engineering graduate

Currently working as an engineer with Brisbane consultancy GHD, Brodie Chan's engineering degree included access to major engineering companies, projects and programs in Australia and internationally. Brodie was also involved in the Griffith Honours College, which gave him the opportunity to volunteer in Vietnam, attend the APEC Youth Summit in Bali and co-ordinate local volunteering projects. Brodie also travelled to Kassel, Germany, as part of a four-week engineering and cultural training module. 'Studying at Griffith has broadened my perspective and given me the confidence, opportunities and the practical tools to go on and achieve my goals as a civil engineer,' he says.
