Aswin Raveendran – Graduate Engineer

My experience at Westernport Water has been phenomenal. The ideal balance of on-site and office based tasks continue to keep the job interesting and fresh every day. I have been given the opportunity not only to consolidate the engineering knowledge gained from my university degree with practical experience, but also have a well-rounded appreciation for the entire organisation and the integral role that it plays within the community.
