Summary

I am a second year Mechatronic Engineering Student at the Queensland University of Technology.

Through involvement in the Leadership Development program at QUT, I have gained effective time management, communication and interpersonal skills. The workshops and activities from this program that I have taken part in can be seen in my Co-Curricular record (Attached)

Through this I have gained effective communication skills, which allow me to communicate with appreciation for the nuance and subtlety required when faced with different cultures and individuals.  I have also learned to work effectively towards goals with relation to a set vision.
