Experiencing things I have never done before while studying in Geelong

March 22, 2023 - 1 min read

With its stunning beaches, relaxing lifestyle and easy public transport access to Melbourne, it is no wonder Geelong is a great destination to live, study and work.

Sarbjeet is from India and is studying a Bachelor of Civil Engineering at Deakin’s Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus.

Living in Geelong has provided Sarbjeet with plenty of opportunities to try new things, explore surrounding areas and make many different friends.

Now, Sarbjeet is enjoying advancing his career. As part of the hands-on learning approach of his course, Sarbjeet had the opportunity to do an internship at the City of Greater Geelong. This experience helped him secure a full-time job as a Stormwater Planning Engineer before he has even completed his studies.
