My job

I provide technical support for a range of environmental monitoring projects. I assist in the design and implementation of innovative monitoring systems, both in the office and on remote field installations.

I support various remote data management activities and applications of new monitoring sensors and play a key role in the support of Greenspan and Pentair monitoring sensors and technology.

I provide high levels of customer support and assist with office administration and project management.

I am currently working on flood warning Stations for the Ipswich City Council, installation of flood warning sign age within the Toowoomba region and Gladstone flood warning stations across the region for the Bureau of Meteorology.

How I got the job

I survived a gruelling interview process to achieve this position.

What I enjoy most

I like the field work. I travel throughout Queensland and possibly Australia to both service and install flood monitoring equipment. This provides me with training and technical knowledge to help me perform better in this role.

I was attracted to the role as environmental monitoring has always been an area I've been interested in.

As a cadet, I learn all the technical aspects of this position and gain a full understanding of the role as an environmental technician.

Why university?

I wanted to further my education after school and TAFE. My degree gave me the skills required to complete my job successfully. It gave me real world experience to tackle issues that I'm faced with on a daily basis, from field trips to laboratory work.

Why USC?

I chose to study at USC because I love the lifestyle on the coast. I have a passion for surfing and studying at USC allowed me to partake in both.

Soon after commencing study I found I loved the campus life and the study options as well as the 5-star teaching style USC offered which made study at USC very enjoyable over my degree length.

If you want a lifestyle on the coast and to still be able to partake in tertiary studies then USC is the best option.
