But Seriously, What is Engineering?
Why engineering?
Oct 26, 2021 Season 1 Episode 2
The University of Queensland

Research indicates that most people know what they want to be when they grow up by age 10.

In this episode of the But Seriously, What is Engineering? podcast, we ask, why choose engineering?

Hear from Caitlin Grant, a third-year chemical and environmental engineering student at The University of Queensland, as she shares her motivations to pursue engineering and why she sticks with this rewarding, yet challenging, program.

Engineering wasn’t on Caitlin’s radar growing up. She originally wanted to be a vet, but support and encouragement from family and a desire to combine her environmental-mindedness with skills in problem solving and maths drew her to study chemical and environmental engineering at UQ.

These days, a dream to make a positive impact on our global environmental footprint and think differently about waste helps to keep her motivated through her studies.

Listen in as Caitlin shares tips for making the most of your engineering studies, including postgraduate studies, industry placement, exchange experiences, networking, and the importance of getting out of your comfort zone.
