Civil Engineering – an international student’s perspective

Eriny Abdelraouf, Egypt
Bachelor of Engineering (Civil)

Recipient of the School of Natural and Built Environments Scholarship for International Students (Civil Engineering), Eriny chose the University of South Australia based on its reputation, “It has very good reputation in all the practical degrees and it has a long history of offering my course.” 

As part of her civil engineering degree, Eriny has enjoyed the enthusiasm lecturers’ show towards their students and the opportunity to work on real life projects. “The lecturers are more than willing to provide help to all students and answer all their questions. We always get to work on real life project and practical tasks, rather than just learning the theory and the derivations.”

Eriny has always had a passion to study engineering, as she explains: “I did not choose engineering but engineering chose me; I have always been in love with math and physics and after finishing high school I realised that nothing but engineering would satisfy my love for these topics. Civil engineering is hands on application of knowledge in math and physics. I am hoping that one day I will be able to help people in poor countries to build cheaper and more sustainable housing.”
