Work experience 

UTMOST has a very active program for engineering students to spend time at the site working on a range of electrical, mechanical, electronic and other projects. Their enthusiasm and hard work has made a huge difference to the rollout of UTMOST. The following students have spent time on site, ranging from a few weeks to 18 weeks, since early  2013, as part of the practical experience requirement for their engineering degrees.

  • Siti Azean Wilson, University of Adelaide
  • Pat Foley, Australian National University
  • Ding Yan, University of Sydney
  • Miles Sweeney, Australian National University
  • Nick Frances, Australian National University
  • Paul Kelly, International Space University
  • Kiarie Ndegwa, Australian National University
  • Daryl Whitfield, Australian National University
  • Toby Lee, University of Sydney
  • Sam Ockerby, Australian National University
  • Kevin Cho, University of Sydney
  • Nick Cramer, Australian National University
  • Simon Jordan, Australian National University
