As a chemical engineer, Tania Ritchie’s career has been anything but formulaic
Studying engineering at the University of Newcastle has given Tania Ritchie a world of interesting experience and opportunity.
While studying, she spent a summer holiday working as a guest researcher at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology in Washington. Tania then moved into research in the University’s Physics department, working on their magnetometer experiment on the Australian FedSat satellite. This led to a three month stay in Antarctica servicing other remote magnetometers.
A stint at the International Institute of Women in Engineering summer school in Paris followed, and now she’s working with emerging solar thermal technologies at the CSIRO Energy centre in Newcastle.
Tania is just one of many Newcastle graduates helping shape the world we live in. And if you’re up to the challenge of studying a Bachelor of Engineering at one of Australia’s most respected universities, you could join them.
