Brett Jenkin
Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Petroleum and Mechanical)

The degree from the University of Adelaide will assist me because the university was so helpful in encouraging me and allowing me to complement my degree with experiences. Things like exchange, working in Timor Leste in sustainable development, broadened my realm of possibility and made me realise just how much I could achieve. The Petroleum Engineering faculty has a lot of courses that realistically represent future career paths. I hope to experience both technical engineering and project management and I’m grateful that my degree was able to teach me tools and skills that are associated with both aspects.
