Jason Jung
3rd year, Civil/Mining Engineering 

“I knew I wanted to study engineering. After attending information days and evaluating the different degrees in terms of interest, career prospects and nature of work, it became very difficult to decide between Civil and Mining. However, since UNSW offers a dual degree for both disciplines, I knew I had to enrol in that one. Being a smaller cohort compared to the other larger disciplines definitely has its advantages as all of us have bonded quickly and help each other out.”
