My international student experience

I am writing this blog to share my experience as an international student and intern at an Australian company.  My name is Neelkumar Shah and I am from India and about to graduate with a Master of Management for Engineers this year. Before enrolling in this postgraduate course, I was a civil engineer in a multinational construction company in India. Like many students, I came to Melbourne and enrolled in CQUniversity with two aims; a better lifestyle and career advancement. After studying at CQUniversity (Melbourne campus), I feel that I have enjoyed living in Melbourne and gained the necessary knowledge and skills for further employment. I hope this brief recount of my experience will give you some insights on the significance of the internship program which is being offered by CQUniversity.

Interestingly, there have been reports of more people in developed countries becoming sick following consumption of contaminated bottled water than those consuming tap water.
