- About Deakin
Mr David Eastham
Bachelor of Biological Science
Employed: Department of Primary Industries (DPI) Graduate Program, Biosecurity Officer/Project Manager
ĎAt Deakin youíre not just a number and the academics take a genuine interest in your studies. I was able to talk with academics who had expertise in areas that appealed to me which helped me decide what subjects, work and volunteer experience would help get me to where I wanted to go.
I enjoyed the flexibility to take on subjects that suited my needs, as well as the opportunity to get a feel for different areas of science in the first year or so before concentrating on subjects that I was particularly interested in.
I was accepted into the DPI Graduate Program which involves three different rotations. Currently Iím a Biosecurity Officer/ Project Manager. Iím looking into techniques and engagement strategies regarding the engagement of Indigenous communities in biosecurity responses. Knowing that my work can make a difference is very rewarding.
My course has helped my career by providing me with knowledge and skills that made me suitable for a wide variety of roles within the workforce Ö and I still consult with the professors from Deakin on various work-related subjects.í
