As the sun sets later each day, the closer we are to the end of Semester two! Woohoo, can’t wait for summer! In semester two I took 5 papers; ENGSCI263, ENGGEN204, MECHENG270, FINANCE251, and COMLAW101. Although this was the first time I took 5 papers, this semester was much easier and less stressful than the…Continue Reading Good vibes only!

Fitting the pieces together
It’s like a puzzle! I’m assuming the majority of you have absolutely no idea what specialisation you want to go into; the coding projects was satisfying so should I do software, the dynamics experiment was fun so should I do mechanical, the truss project was interesting so should I do Civil? What do I do…Continue Reading Fitting the pieces together

Alright Alright Alright
Alright, alright, alright. After my terribly vague EngSci intro, I thought I should follow with some super specific deets. That is, the Semester 1 review; highlighting BIOMENG 221, ENGSCI 233 and, of course, ENGSCI 211. Quick note: semester 2 so far has been in no way reflective of semester 1. BIOMENG 221: Mechanics of Engineered…Continue Reading Alright Alright Alright
