Students and members of the public took advantage of the day-long open day staged by the Ministry of Works, Transport, and Public Utilities at their Walu Bay Depot in Suva yesterday.
Dudley High School student, Aroha Memaofa, said the event educated students in engineering and public utilities.
“This is good exposure for us because we get to see and learn new things, especially for us technical drawing students,” Miss Memaofa said.
“Apart from the Fiji National University (FNU) Open Day, this is the only other time we have been given the opportunity to come here and see the work that goes on within the ministry.”
Miss Memaofa said she aspired to become a mechanic just like her father, after she completed her education.
“I want to become a mechanic and fix cars and engines, just like my dad used to do.”
Meanwhile, electrical engineering FNU attaché, Mereani Celua, said she had a passion for the engineering profession.
“This is my second month of attachment with the ministry and I have enjoyed it.
“I am following my schedule closely and hope to graduate in December,” the Verata-Wailevu lass said.
“I like to prove myself to my male counterparts in the same field.
“Electrical engineers are in demand as new infrastructures are constructed, electrical engineers are needed to do wiring work,” Miss Celua said.
