Mr Brendan Banfield
PhD Candidate at Australian Power Quality & Reliability Centre
The University of Wollongong offers students an excellent educational experience. With much of the subject matter being industry focused, students are able to develop knowledge that is extremely useful once out in the workforce. Along with the relevant subject matter, students are also exposed to world class laboratory facilities. It is here students are able to take the knowledge they have learnt in the classroom and put it into practice, which I think is vital for aspiring engineers. It was these learning facilities along with the excellent staff at UOW which cemented my passion for power engineering while I was completing my bachelor's degree. This passion ultimately led to the decision to further my knowledge and to pursue a PhD at UOW.
