Geelong Future Leaders of Industry Program
Joshua Birch is proudly representing Christian College in the 'Geelong Future Leaders of Industry Program' for 2017. Joshua is one of many young people in the Geelong region involved in this exciting program.
The first day of the program involved a training session on 'Communications and Work Readiness Skills', a tour of Deakin's engineering and haptics labs and 'Robotics Centre' and a tour of the 'Centre for Advance Design in Engineering Training (CADET)'. The day ended with an inspiring keynote speaker, Dr Clara Usma Alverez, speaking on her journey as a Product Design Engineer and her current projects.
Joshua thought his first day in the program was amazing. He was impressed by the work conducted in the CADET facility and found it inspiring and motivating. Joshua found the work readiness session to be insightful and recognised it was something he had not given much thought to. He believed he now had a better understanding of the importance of presentation in the interviewing process.
The most enjoyable part of the day for Joshua was the High Voltage lab and meeting students from other schools who also enjoyed technology.
