Meet Robert Makepeace

UNSW Electrical Engineering Graduate

You might be asking yourself where a career in Engineering could take you. Maybe it could be a space station sending rockets into the universe or hundreds of kilometres underground working in a mega-mine.

For Robert Makepeace, a UNSW engineering degree has led him beyond civilisation to one of the most far-flung places in the world – Antarctica. Robert studied a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering (Honours) at UNSW and graduated in 2014.
