Srivaths Parayil
Master of Project Management

Since commencing his studies in RMIT’s Master of Project Management, Srivaths Parayil is learning to manage complex projects with a range of stakeholders, on time and on budget.  

The future looks bright for graduates like Srivaths. Project management is booming with statistics showing there are more jobs than candidates and plenty of well-paid roles in the market.

“There's a big hype over project management,” Srivaths said.  

“Ten or 15 years ago, project management was never a specific thing. Now today, it's big in the market. Project management is something that industries need.

“I actually learned from this course that 85 percent of a project manager's duty is communication,” Srivaths said.

He said RMIT’s strong connection to industry partners was yet another leg up in the world of work.

“Eight guest lectures for a course just indicated the level of importance and the quality of education in the course.”

Abby Walter
Bachelor of Communications (Professional Communication)

Having recently completed her first year studying professional communications at RMIT, Abby Walter is working towards an exciting – and hopefully globetrotting – career in journalism.

“At RMIT, I’ve had the chance to experiment and learn in multiple disciplines in my field of study. Not only has it cemented my decision to pursue journalism, but it has also helped me understand how they would overlap in the working world.

“I chose RMIT because it felt right. I went to a couple of open days and was thinking that I could attend these universities and really enjoy it, but as soon as I walked around the RMIT city campus I knew that it was exactly where I wanted to go to university. 

“My dream job would be to work overseas for a print publication or online journal. I think the experience would be phenomenal. I love the prospect of travelling while doing something that I love. It would be an incredible learning curve."

Sebastian Lin
Bachelor of Engineering (Aerospace Engineering) and Bachelor of Business (Management)

A career in the field of space technology and exploration would be a dream come true for engineering/business student Sebastian Lin.

"I decided to study Engineering at RMIT as they provide professional experience and industry exposure you cannot find anywhere else. The programs here offer students the chance to have a hands-on approach to their learning, applying theory to tangible projects. In my studies, my fascination with science, physics, and technology has been continuously encouraged and fostered by RMIT. 

"Earlier this year I received an Undergraduate Research Scholarship for research conducted through work-integrated learning at the Defence Science and Technology Group. It was highly beneficial to my professional development that RMIT provided support for me to engage in exciting and high-impact research with an industry partner.

"My dream career would see me playing a part in making Australia a world leader in space technology and exploration."
