Pravishneel Pravinay Jeet is eager to wear the Fiji National University’s (FNU) blue graduation gown next week Friday.
Jeet was amongst the many graduands who paid a visit to FNU’s Academic Office at Nasinu Campus to register to graduate and collect his graduation materials.
He will be graduating from FNU’s College of Engineering, Science and Technology (CEST) with a Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) (Honours).
The former Bhawani Dayal Arya College student’s passion for drawing led him to study Diploma in Engineering (Civil) (Level 6) at FNU.
“I chose this programme because I loved drawing, and then when I joined FNU and learnt more of what Civil Engineering is; this led me to further my education in this field,” he explained.
“My brother is a Civil Engineer in Australia – seeing him excel in the field in engineering, inspired me to follow his footsteps as well.”
“While I was working, I finished my first qualification at FNU; a Diploma in Engineering, and this will be my second time to graduate. While I was completing my Diploma, I was attached to Fortech
Construction Pte Ltd for 6 months, following which my passion made me want to continue to study.”
“After finishing my Trade Diploma in Civil Engineering, I did bridging units to enrol into the Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honors) programme,” he explained.
“While I was studying, I applied to work at the Fiji Roads Authority (FRA) and now, I am currently employed as a Works Inspector at FRA.”
The young Engineer is grateful to FNU to make it possible for working students to be able to work and study simultaneously.
“I chose FNU as this is the only institution that offered a Diploma of Engineering programme providing a pathway to further my education in the engineering field. The flexible timing of the class also made it possible for me to be able to continue studying Civil Engineering while working,” he said gratefully.
