California dreaming

20 March 2009


Mechanical engineering student Ne Tan is spending the first semester of this year studying at the University of California, Berkeley as part of the Monash Abroad program.

Ne, an international student from Shanghai, China, began her Monash journey at Monash College in October 2006.

There she completed a diploma that enabled her to enter Monash University as a second-year student.

Now in her third year of study, the Monash Abroad program will see her complete four units of study in the US before returning to Australia in May 2009.

Ne said she applied for Monash Abroad because it was a great chance to experience life at another university, particularly at one as well-known as the University of California.

"Itís a fantastic challenge as the education system in America is quite different to Australia," Ne said.

"This study experience is helping me grow personally and will help me with future employment opportunities."

Ne, a self-confessed motor sport fan, hopes to one day design racing cars.
