Studying at UTS Science was a real hands-on experience and this is something that’s really valuable when you’re studying nanotechnology. I’m Michael Walz and I studied a Bachelor of Science in Nanotechnology at UTS.

I’ve always had an inquisitive way of looking at the world, I’ve loved physics, chemistry, maths and how things function on a molecular level and to me nanotechnology is the bringing together of physics and chemistry, and as an emerging field it really appealed to me.

UTS Science gave me a really good skill set in solving problems. It taught me how to break down a problem into its separate components then look at those components, analyse them, put them back together and get the correct answer.

As an Asset Data and Reporting Engineer here at Veolia I get to go on site, train operators, deal with site and the best way is to collect data then go back to the office, look at that data and the relationships between it and produce reports that influence business decisions.

And that’s one of the many reasons why I love what I do. I want to drive efficiency and reduce waste in business. Looking at what we’re currently doing, how we’re currently doing it and how we can improve on this. Not only is that good for the business, it’s good for the environment and it’s good for the planet.
