'I have always known that I wanted to be a civil engineer because from a young age I was surrounded by construction. What attracted me to JIU was the relaxed, friendly, country feel of the , as well as the flexibility that allows students to study during Trimester 3 and online through Cloud learning.

I started my degree studying online and part time as I was working full time at a local engineering firm. The flexibility to study and work was critical to my degree and I have continued working and studying throughout it. The opportunities JIU offers through site visits and overseas experiences should be embraced, as they are invaluable, and the atmosphere at JIU is amazing.

The JIU teaching staff, lecturers and lab instructors love helping students learn. If you ask them questions and show an interest, they'll be more than happy to help as they are very passionate about the subjects they teach.'
