VIC Tech Event for University Students | LESSONS LEARNT
Join us for an insightful evening where you can hear from experienced engineers who have had to adjust project steps to avoid major hiccups!

Purpose of the event

Not every project goes according to plan. And that is OK, as long as you fix it and learn from it. Come along and learn about project issues, how they were fixed, and what we would have been done if we had our time again.

When: Thursday 17 May from 5:45 - 8:30pm
