Grow the business to increase our capacity and therefore the assistance we can provide to Australian electronics manufacturers.

#1 tip for current students studying your course:
Get a good understanding of all the basics. You have no idea what you will and won't use in your career but you can be sure that if you don't understand the basics you will be at a big disadvantage if you have to work in that area.
