Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Mechatronics) and Bachelor of Science (Advanced)

Sydney can only be transformed into a first-tier city by building its technological capability without squashing the historical culture of the city, according to Lendlease Bradfield Urbanisation Scholarship finalist, Edward Fay. “The future of Sydney isn’t built on silica, as it has been for the past two hundred years; it will be built on silicon.”
