Energy Pipelines CRC PhD Graduates 2017
Last week I had the pleasure to watch Bradley Davis his graduation ceremony at the University of Wollongong. On the day former Australian of the Year Tim Flannery, gave a moving keynote speech. He spoke passionately about climate change and the role of science and innovation in society.
Professor Flannery congratulated all graduates on their academic achievements and emphasised their ability to change society for the better throughout their future carriers. He reflected on the important part that the University plays in every student’s life; not only through the knowledge and skills acquired during education, but also through life experiences gained and long lasting friendships made.
I would also like to personally congratulate all the Energy Pipelines CRC higher degree students that completed their doctoral thesis over the past 12 months. We had a record number of 10 students completing this year, which is a great accomplishment. Special thanks to all academic and industry supervisors that contributed to this success.
On behalf of the whole Energy Pipelines CRC team, I wish Shyama, Houman, Ying, Fari, James, Brad, Rahim, Walter, Bin, and Dolruedee all the best in their future careers!
