- About Deakin
‘I completed an Industry-Based Learning (IBL) placement in the final year of my environmental science degree. My placement was with the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority (CMA), one of 10 CMAs in Victoria established by the Victorian Government to ensure the protection of natural resources within river catchments.
I was then offered a position with Corangamite CMA before I even completed my course. I felt so fortunate to be able to go straight from study to working. My placement really reinforced my passion for the environment and made me very excited about my future career prospects. It provided me with hands-on experience in the industry, built up my confidence and enabled me to develop new skills.’
