“ I’ve received one-on-one help when I’ve struggled.”

Shamika Wijesinghalage

Master of Engineering (Telecommunications)

Choosing MIT has been the best decision I’ve made for my further studies in the telecommunication field. I originally chose MIT because the engineering degree is accredited by Engineers Australia and because of MIT’s great location in the heart of the city. After studying here, I’ve found that MIT also takes a holistic approach to education and provides the utmost care and assistance to students. I’ve received one-on-one help when I’ve struggled with assignments and lab work, and lecturers have also stayed back after class to help me figure out any concepts I had trouble with. The degree is very practical - I’ve been involved in project work that requires us to find engineering solutions in existing systems, and solve real-time problems – all skills that will be useful on the job. Studying this course at MIT has definitely increased my confidence to pursue my passion in the telecommunication industry.
