'I am passionate about the future of electric vehicle technology, innovative battery technologies and the future of modern power grid.'

Natalie Burke

Student / Biomedial Engineer

WHO IS SHE:

I am a graduate electrical engineer working towards my Master of Engineering (Electrical) at Central Queensland University and Master of Business Administration (Leadership) as well as Master of Engineering Science (Bioengineering) at the University of Queensland. I have recently graduated with Graduate Certificate of Engineering Science (Electrical Engineering) from the University of Queensland. I am passionate about the future of electric vehicle technology, innovative battery technologies and the future of modern power grid. Therefore, I decided to enhance my skills in both electrical and chemical engineering. I also hold a Bachelor of Science (Queensland University of Technology) and a Diploma of Business Management (TAFE Queensland).

KEY STRENGTHS:

Communication and negotiation, leading teams, solving complex problem, solid technical background in electronics and advanced embedded systems.

WHY CHOOSE THIS DEGREE?

After completing a Degree in Science I found it more interesting to work on technical jobs and projects when I was working as a workshop technician at Medical Engineering Research Facility (QUT). A year later I joined a team of electrical and electronic engineers at Greenslopes Private Hospital. This is where I was truly inspired and fell in love with all things electrical.
