Nicola's choice: Swinburne's innovation over tradition
Nicola’s commitment to choosing innovation over tradition meant she choose to study Law and Engineering at Swinburne. As part of her course, she was able to get to experience placements in a number of different ways, which has landed her an ongoing position. Ready to take on new opportunities, Nicola learned to put her hand up for new opportunities and take the next step in her career.
My work requires a thorough understanding of the Local Government Act as well as contracts with different stakeholders. I am glad to have studied Law in addition to Engineering as it gives me an extra edge in providing engineering solutions which are legally and commercially viable.
