Studying at Monash University as a postgraduate student has been a great experience. The staff have always been professional and keen to pass on their experiences and expertise, and have treated the students as real colleagues. Also, as many of the other postgraduate students within Art & Design are working within the industry, it has been a great opportunity to meet like minded people and develop useful networks.
I was a general duties member of the Victoria Police Force at the beginning of the course, and hoped to be able to gain enough knowledge and expertise to be able to pursue a career in Forensic Animation. I also hoped to develop a network of friends and colleagues within the Multimedia Design industry. Within a year of commencing the Master of Multimedia course, I was able to join the Criminal Identification Squad of the Victoria Police. I now specialise in Forensic Animation, producing both 2-D and 3-D interactive presentations for use in major criminal investigations. As a result of commencing my postgraduate studies, I have achieved the goals I originally set for myself, and am now looking forward to bigger and better things.
