Monash Engineering Scholarships awarded to two 2017 Old Collegians
On Wednesday 9 May, Monash Engineering welcomed 90 first-year students, their families and representatives from their high schools to the annual Engineering Scholarship Celebration.
It was a great pleasure to represent the school and congratulate on behalf of the school community Mr Anthony Ticinovic (2017) and Mr Samuel Callaghan (2017) who were amongst the select group of recipients celebrated on the evening.
The Dean of Engineering, Professor Elizabeth Croft presented a gift to each scholarship recipient in recognition of their achievements.
Guest-speaker, Mechanical Engineering student Ms Monique Lautee presented an inspiring insight into her life at Monash University. “Engineering is about turning the theory into something useful. It’s going to challenge the way you think, the way you problem solve, the way you work with other people and it will also impact the way you see the world and your place in it,” she emphasised.
Monique’s advice to first-year students is to make the most of every opportunity and don’t be afraid to try something new. “Monash has offered me countless opportunities to not only advance my technical skills, but also to develop myself – both professionally and personally” she said.
