The University of Newcastle, Australia

Jenil knows that the field of civil engineering is rapidly evolving. That’s why he wanted to make sure he had the highest level of education possible in order push boundaries in his chosen field.

Leaving his home in India to first complete a Diploma in Construction Engineering at Nanyang Institute of Management in Singapore, Jenil’s ultimate dream was to pursue further study in Australia. Following an interactive session with University of Newcastle staff about his pathway options, he was quick to enrol in a Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours).

“The vast application potential and tremendous scope for a high career in civil engineering had always fascinated me and I was keen to continue my academic pursuit in this field.

“The state-of-the-art research facilities, combined with a distinguished and dedicated engineering faculty, really attracted me to the University of Newcastle,” Jenil said.

Since commencing his studies, Jenil has been able to gain firsthand experience using these facilities while being supported by staff and civil engineering experts.

“I strongly believe that studying at the University of Newcastle has been the best choice I’ve made. Not only do they have an excellent and well experienced faculty to train, assist and support students in shaping their future, but internship opportunities are provided in every course.

“Access to the research labs and design studios has been really important for me. I can proudly say these facilities have enhanced my skills in practical knowledge and pushed me to achieve the best result possible.

“On top of the University being a great place to get a globally recognised education, Newcastle itself is an outstanding place to live.”

Looking to the future, Jenil has his eyes firmly set on making an innovative mark on the civil engineering world.

“I see myself playing a larger role than just another civil engineer working on modern construction tools, techniques and technologies.

“My father is an entrepreneur in the field of civil construction and by enhancing my knowledge at a world-class institution, I will have the skills to join my father’s company.

“My plan is to take the enterprise to the next level by having a global approach to critical civil infrastructure,” Jenil concluded.
