Careers Week at UC

Paul Gekas (UC 1980) and Marwin Sim (UC 2008) discuss careers in engineering and architecture

During the week commencing Monday 4 September, University College students welcomed College alumni from various industries to Careers Week to speak about life after university studies.

Over breakfast in the morning or supper during the evening, eight alumni have given their time to share stories about their own educational journey and career pathway with current students aspiring to those industries.

Wednesday evening will see a panel of five alumni discuss their studies, their careers and their experience of the transition between university and the workplace.

Alumni bring to Careers Week a diverse range of industry experience spanning engineering services, technology, architecture, communications, law, research and academia, business administration, psychology, sciences and medicine.

“I’m always interested in giving back to UC students where possible. I am currently undertaking a PhD in Environmental Science at the University of Melbourne. This is one pathway for budding scientists who are interested in research.” Alex Norton (UC 2009)
