We are very excited to share this wonderful news of our new recipient for this year's Bluefield Engineering Scholarship Program through the University of Southern Queensland.
Congratulations, Bailey Duncan!
Bailey Duncan is currently completing his second semester towards a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree at USQ Toowoomba, which he hopes to graduate in 2025.
"I come from Westbrook on the outskirts of Toowoomba and completed my schooling in 2020 at St Mary’s College, Toowoomba. Throughout my schooling years, I found the concept of designing, improving and producing new and innovative ideas exciting. I have always had a passion for mechanical machines as well as developing an understanding of their workings and formulation and the subjects I studied at school encouraged me to pursue my studies at USQ. At the beginning of 2021, I was extremely grateful to be granted the Bluefield Engineering Scholarship. This has enabled me to focus on studying full-time rather than working and studying part-time. I am hoping to use a USQ Bachelor of Engineering degree to secure a position in a regional engineering organisation within the mining or agricultural sectors. With my passion for innovation, and the knowledge gained in an engineering degree to build on my skills, I am hoping to develop new equipment which either optimises the productivity and efficiency of existing equipment and staff or uses modern technology to produce alternatives moving forward".
At Bluefield, we believe it is important to nurture new talent to ensure the availability of qualified staff in our industry into the future and to also encourage young tradespeople in the industry, who might not be able to engage in further study to consider applying for university.
