The Deakin Engineering Alumni Chapter held its second event for 2017 in July at the Deakin Downtown venue in Melbourne’s CBD.
Guest speaker for the evening was Mr David Brim, the CEO and co-founder of Tomcar Australia. Tomcar Australia is an innovative Australian manufacturer of military, agricultural and mining off-road all-terrain vehicles.

The format for the evening was an interactive question and answer session, with Master of Ceremony duties performed by Deakin Engineering alumnus Lieutenant Colonel Dave Hughes.
