Arun is spread (sometimes very thinly!) across three main roles.
1. He is currently a Civil/Water Engineer with URS in their Melbourne Office and is studying a part-time Masters of Water Resource Management,
2. Arun is also an Event Ambassador to the Humanitarian Engineering Conference 2011, and an active volunteer with Engineers Without Borders.
3. Lastly, he is an Officer in Training with the Australian Army Reserves.
Arun had always thought that being an engineer meant directly serving the interests of the public, and becoming one would give him the ability to give back to society with a big impact.
Thankfully after over four years working as one, he still believes that is the case!
Engineering is one of the most diverse, important and wide reaching careers one can have. An engineer can go to any country and become a positive force for improvement in people's daily lives.
Whether its through his volunteering, work or Army career, Arun hopes that he can "be the change he wishes to see in the world".
Arun has always had an interest in Aid & Development, which led him to take the plunge with EWB and he has not looked back since! Volunteer work is an excellent way to reach your true potential outside of the workplace, giving you the freedom to really explore your passions.
Upon graduating, Arun took the most important life choice he has ever made - to take a year off and travel around the Europe and India. What he saw and experienced on that trip changed his life to this day, for a number of reasons. He believes that such a trip will always be an invaluable, eye opening experience in ones life.
The one thing that he will never forget is the huge potential that everyone has to change not only their own lives, but the lives of others for the better.
Arun believes that through hard work, motivation, and willpower, engineers have the power to "Make It So".
