"The Undergraduate Program has been greatly fulfilling in transferring the theoretical understanding of my degree into a practical and professional setting. The projects individually curated to me have both challenged and motivated me as an undergraduate civil engineer. I now have a much greater understanding and appreciation for the role of engineers in local government and feel confident in graduating having been given this opportunity at Central Coast Council."
