In 2010 Dyne industries offered a scholarship for up to two years to an electrical engineering student interested in power engineering. This scholarship meant that the recipient had their tertiary fees paid and gained some valuable work place learning.
Daniel Palermo, winner of the 2010 Dyne Industries scholarship said, “I learnt a lot of valuable lessons from my 12 weeks work experience. It taught me things that I could never learn directly at university and let me put my theory into practice”.
“It was a great opportunity and I am extremely grateful to Frank Smit and all the staff ay Dyne Industries for the invaluable experience I obtained and some great learning, that I hope to take into my professional career,” Daniel said.
Dyne Industries is an Australian owned and operated small business which manufactures small electrical transformers for the manufacturing, audio and electronics industry and current transformers for measurement and protection in the power distribution sector.
Frank Smit is the Dyne Industries CEO.
“We value and encourage Australian entrepreneurship,” Mr Smit said. “In order to promote these values, we encourage young people to achieve their best in engineering and allied fields, and the scholarship is a means to help achieve this.
“We promote a high standard of practical engineering skills within our organisation and recognise the importance of nurturing that ability among engineering students.
“Being involved in the power electrical section of manufacturing we have pleasure in offering our scholarship to RMIT students intending to enter the power electrical arena.”
Scholarships like this, offer students an opportunity to gain hands-on work experience while completing their studies without the burden of the financial liability. The combination of formal study and practical work experience, ensure that students like Daniel have a well rounded education and graduate from their degree job-ready.
