Deep Dive Dialogues: Navigating the Post-Graduate Journey with MI Alumni | Ep 02



In today's episode of WaveCast, host Eugenie is joined by two alumni to chat about their experiences in their programs and their career journeys after MI.  

Our first guest is Kate McLeod, a 2020 graduate with a Diploma of Technology in Naval Architecture, now the student liaison officer at MI. Kate takes us through her decision to study at MI, the transition from graduation to her first job, and the fears she faced entering the workforce. Kate provides great advice for new grads and lessons learned post-grad! 

Next, we dive into the world of ocean mapping with Daniel Amirault, who graduated in 2020 from the joint Diploma and Bachelors of Technology program. Currently working as a Marine Geomatics Technician with Amundsen Science, Daniel shares his journey that led him to Amundsen Science and insights into the MI Ocean Mapping program
