- About Deakin
‘At Deakin you’re 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 get me to where I wanted to go.
I finished the DPI Graduate Program in December 2011 and am currently working as a Biosecurity Leader - Incursion Control. This involves looking into the best ways to respond to high-risk invasive plants and animals that may enter our state. 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... and I still consult with the professors from Deakin on various work-related subjects.’
