Ojasvi Gupta, Graduate Project/Electrical Engineer at Shell and youth leader at global peace organisation Soka Gakkai International, committed to fostering a culture of vibrant humanism and respect for the dignity of all life, wherever she goes. Growing up, I experienced life in multiple countries; India, South Korea and finally Australia, where my parents settled when I was a young girl. Passionate about a whole range of worldly topics and subjects, I graduated as an Electrical and Computer Systems Engineer from Monash University in Melbourne, and moved to Brisbane for my first full-time job. I believe that each person contains within them an unlimited tank of wisdom, courage and compassion, and encourages each person to tap this tank within them to flourish greatly, and contribute to humanity.
About my role
As a Project Engineer, you work on projects which involve modification to existing facilities/assets – such projects can take anywhere from 6 months – multiple years before they enter construction. This role is involved in stages of a project where you will coordinate and manage detailed engineering works, material procurement, planning a maintenance strategy for the procured materials, ensuring all relevant due diligence is completed so the project is ready for construction, amongst many other activities. As part of these works, you will travel to site quite frequently and interact with many teams to make sure you deliver a project successfully.
