Declan ClausenDeclan Clausen

Declan is studying a combined Environmental Engineering and Science degree at the University of Newcastle and has achieved more in the past decade than many of us would hope to achieve in a lifetime. While Declan is only in his early 20's, his list of awards and achievements take up an entire page of his CV, including the prestigious title of Newcastle's Young Citizen of the Year.

His passion for the environment began at a young age and continued to grow after an inspiring high school teacher encouraged him to become more involved in scientific programs. Declan has been awarded a scholarship with the Hunter Water Corporation and sees University as an excellent opportunity to learn more about the industry.

"Both the science and engineering programs have significant practical components which enable me to test out theory in real life. I love the hands on learning opportunities offered which grounds the complex concepts established in the classroom."
