LEARNING PRECINCT
In between classes, you can study
or conduct group work in the FEIT
Learning Precinct. This student space
is where you can access teachers for
individual and small group support,
as well as reference material and
software and hardware resources.

   UTS LIBRARY
   The UTS Library has expanded to
   include an underground storage system
   that uses robotic cranes for the retrieval
   of less- demanded books, making
   borrowing faster and simpler. This
   library upgrade is part of the larger UTS

 PIYUSH SOMVANSHI
 Master of Engineering in Manufacturing
 Engineering and Management
Piyush Somvanshi had spent three years in his industry after
completing his Bachelor of Engineering in Mumbai before
deciding to pursue his master’s in Australia.
“From my work experience, I knew that initially, in 5-10 years I
 would be working as a technical person, and then I would be
 promoted to a manager’s position. So I wanted to learn both
 sides right now, so that I got a solid lead on the others,” says
 Piyush.
Piyush’s time at UTS has opened up a raft of work
opportunities such as being a Student Promotional
Representative for the Faculty of Engineering, working for
Access UTS to assist Japanese students, and joining the Peer
Network. He’s also completed both the Accomplish Award
and Soul Award.
These experiences have taught Piyush many lessons about
securing the ideal industry position.
“You have to actually make contacts in industry. Go to
 networking events, socialize with people don’t stick to your
 own group. You have to know people to get your foot in the
 door and get an interview,” he says.
“Be active at university. Being active in university gets you
 university jobs.”
 What are his plans after finishing his degree?
“I would rather learn from here and try to implement those
 things back home. Down the lane I want to start my own
 business and into consulting,” Piyush says.
 His advice for international students looking to study at UTS
 is simple.
“Explore, make new friends, and if you are scared, don’t
 hesitate to ask for help, everyone is here to help!”

 ROJAN SHRESTHA
 Graduate Certificate in Engineering
For Rojan Shrestha, gaining a job with Vertical Telecoms was
directly related to his UTS studies. In particular, the company
was looking for someone with demonstrated experience
working with Nokia routers and switches. As part of the
university’s commitment to industry-relevant course content,
UTS had existing relationships with a range of companies in
the telecommunications field, including Nokia and Cisco.
“While I was studying at UTS, I took some subjects that were
 based on UTS’s collaboration with Nokia.” Rojan says.
“UTS has developed a work-based learning approach that I
 liked very much. When I started working, I didn’t need much
 technical training. I just went there, understood the company
 and got started straight away”
“When employers look for their prospective employees, they
 look for people who they need to use less resources for the
 training. I believe the time I spent with UTS not only helped me
 with my technical skills but also developed a can do attitude
 which will help me for my future career.”

     Major in Robotics
     Australia is on track to achieve a $2.2 trillion boost to
     national income by 2030 from increases to productivity
     through automation.
     Delivered through practical studios, this multidisciplinary
     major will give you an advanced knowledge of robotic
     engineering. This includes the application of design thinking,
     a deep understanding of the traditional principles of robot
     motion systems, industrial application of robotics and
     advanced subjects that consider collision, avoidance and
     optimisation for robot trajectory planning and control.
     Underpinned by maths, hardware and software, control and
     planning, sensing and perception, this major is motivated by
     real-world application to respond to global demand.

 He found UTS’s modern learning environment engaging. “It’s
 group-focused, a more up-to-date way of teaching. The
 spaces are different—you can tell just by looking at the
 buildings. The classrooms are designed to how the subjects
 should be taught.”
 The diversity of students was another appeal. “I’m always
 trying to learn from different cultures and interact with
 different people.”
 Juan Felipe says the degree is broadening his business
 expertise in preparation for the future. “It helps me bridge the
 gap that I had.”
