Work History

Work History

Trainee Mechanical Engineer

I attained my industrial work at Flour Mills Of Fiji during December 2008 to February 2009 as a requirement for a successful degree program for a duration of ten weeks.


The Robotics and Automation Group (RAG), which is a research and development group within school of engineering and physics (USP) is engaged in collaborative educational project, Robocon which participates in ABU ROBOCON contest, of which I lead the team to Tokyo, Japan in 2009 and an active member in the year of 2008.

Student Research Assistant  

I was employed part time at University of The South Pacific in 2010as research assistant for a relief period.My job involved honesty, intergrity and maintaining confidentiality at all times, updating, maintaining and retrieving information.

Autonomous Vehicle 2

Engineering Project, comprising of thesis, presentation and hardware realization. Differential Drive with PID line tracing Robot was designed by a group of students as a requirement for faculty for an undergraduate.
