Elisa Hardijanto - Designing a Career Path
People choose transport and traffic engineering as a specialism for lots of different reasons. Sometimes it’s a an inspirational lecturer, sometimes it’s the opportunity to work on an interesting project during your early years of uni. We talked to Elisa, one of our recent grads, about why she chose transport engineering and what her experience has been of the transition between uni and work.
I was interested in design while I was at school, including urban planning, architectural and interior design. At school I took art, graphics, physics and calculus and I initially wanted to study architecture at uni. I ended up studying engineering and found that the design components of the transportation papers really appealed to me.
I came to TDG because I had heard a lot about the business while I was working as a transport engineering intern elsewhere, as well as knowing them through their presence on campus at the Engineering Faculty (TDG was one of the Engineering Revue sponsors). I have found our company to be a welcoming group of people to work with and be taught by. Other people I studied with had come with a background interest in geography and planning. If you like problem solving, this is a great industry to work in with real impact on people’s day to day lives.
