I just thought I better do a quick update on why I am not posting to my blog as regularly as I should be.
Currently I am totally overwhelmed by uni work. I am in my final year of Chemical Engineering, and it really is as hard as they say.
Every minute of your day you have to be thinking about the problems that they have presented you with. But I suppose this is a challenge to get us ready for the workforce, where your days are dominated with issues and problems that you have to solve fast.
I have just handed in part 2 of a 3 part assignment for Process Equipment design, and I am looking at preparing for the Heat and Mass Transport Processes mid semester test next monday.
I still have 4 other assignments on the drawing board, 3 of which are for process engineering, a purely practical subject, where it takes a whole heap of time researching and problem solving, to just get a satisfactory result. But I suppose that is what it is all about. Being fast and satisfactory. Companies quite often only expect satisfactory, because if you spend too long on something, then you are wasting their money perfecting something that works well just the way it is.
On the other front, my job seeking quest is going well. I have progressed a few stages in the BHP Billiton recruitment program, and I am really looking forward to the possibility of working for them. I do love BHP, and mining is where I would idealy love to be. This means that I will need to move over to WA at the end of the year. But I am also looking forward to that. WA is so nice. Great people and great places to visit.
So don't expect too many more posts from me for the next couple of months. It is going to get very hectic.
