A ‘FLOOD’ OF WORK AT START OF ENGINEERING STUDENT’S CAREER~CQU University
CQUniversity Bundaberg Civil Engineering student Jordan Maultby’s career has started with a ‘flood’ of opportunities – or at least opportunities relating to floods.
Jordan has secured an Undergraduate Engineering role in the Rockhampton office of a prestigious international company – AECOM – which has around 95,000 employees in over 150 countries.
He has started out in the area of Hydrology and Hydraulics, working on flood models. Longer-term he will rotate between water and transport-related projects and possibly other areas of the business.
“I am absolutely loving it – the company itself is very well set up and is goal/success-orientated with many visions locally and on a larger scale to maintain and further their market performance in the coming decades,” Jordan says.
“The modelling programs are complex but I will learn them gradually over the coming months as I spend more time on projects requiring flood modelling.
“The office workplace and people are very supportive of studies and career progression and are all very motivated themselves. It’s more than I could have hoped for and I will be sure to embrace the challenges and opportunities I’m blessed to have.”
Though still early in his career, Jordan has already volunteered for activities with peak body Engineers Australia and plans to continue this association for networking and professional development.
Outside the world of Engineering, he has used his spare time to become a talented pianist.
