Candidates' statements

Richard Tong

Hello Fellow Engineers, My name is Richard Tong and I am running for the Faculty Board of FEIT because I believe Engineers deserve a strong voice at UTS. I am currently wrapping up my first year of Software Engineering at UTS. I am passionate about our faculty because I believe that UTS Engineering will produce some of the most innovative ideas and minds in this technological era. However, the engineering facility is not without its faults, with students enrolled before 2015 not receiving honours with their degrees, and with stories of subjects such as E and C having failure rates of 75%. Clearly, change is required for our faculty to deliver the quality education we deserve.

For a strong voice on the board for Engineers Vote [1] Richard Tong!

Dominic Cantrall

I consider education to be the best investment one can make. I take my own quite seriously and want to do my bit to make the UTS FEIT more challenging, relevant, and engaging.
