  • "I wanted to make a career out of helping others but also wanted to stand out from the crowd. That’s why I came to Swinburne! I had an invaluable experience during my paid placement at Draeger, an international leader in medical technology. Now, I’m starting Swinburne’s first Biomedical Engineering Club and my journey’s just getting better and better."
