Meet Falgun Prajapati, for whom the laboratory facilities at Flinders Tonsley Campus have proved ‘heavenly’ for the enthusiastic Master of Electronic Engineering student from India.
I chose to study at Flinders University above all other universities in Australia because of the research potential in the electronics domain. It’s much greater than any other university, I found. The skillful professors were just icing on the cake!
The best aspect of my degree is the hands-on approach. As an engineer, one must not depend upon bookish knowledge, as hands-on experience is always required. The facilities and laboratories at the Tonsley Campus are really great for this kind of work, where you can combine theoretical with practical. The Tonsley campus is a kind of heaven for an enthusiastic electronics student.
I’ve been passionate about engineering since I was at school. I studied a combined undergraduate degree in Electronics and Information Technology, and it was during this I discovered aspects of electrical engineering were at the backbone of most industries. So my passion grew stronger from there.

I chose to study in Australia because it is very safe, has a high standard of living and the opportunities available after studying. Life in Adelaide has been pleasantly amazing. The atmosphere of the city is lively, and it’s a very natural, beautiful environment.
