CAPE - Testimonial - Electrotechnology - Bradley Scott

Saving time studying. Saving the world.

“As a species we need to evolve our environmental practices, otherwise we perish. That is where engineers come in – we solve problems.”

Bradley Scott - Associate Degree of Applied Engineering

Bradley Scott completed a Renewable Energy Engineering course, launching him into the final year of a degree at the University of Newcastle.

“Now I have finished my TAFE NSW studies I am completing my Bachelor studies and then plan to specialise in chemical engineering, specifically in biomass.” Bradley says.

While Bradley’s passion helps him earn his degrees, it’s that same passion for renewable energy that could help the whole world.

“Put simply, it’s about working with our region’s plant materials and exploring how to extract the energy out of them.”
