School visits by Oceaneering

The School Pathways Program, Defence Industries in partnership with Oceaneering International, Hamilton Senior High School and Como Secondary College recently held a series of industry visits to schools.

General Manager, Mr Tony Connell visited both schools to demonstrate to students and staff, how ROV technology is used in industry.
Students viewed a comprehensive power point presentation about ROV technology and Mr Connell was able to share his vast international experience in this area during questions by the audience. He emphasised the importance of finding a career that you are passionate about and to build it around your strengths and interests.
Students completed an online tutorial after the presentation and will have the opportunity to operate a mobile robotics simulator during the follow up visit. After this, students will be selected to visit Oceaneering’s facilities and see the operation of a full sized simulator.
Students and staff were made aware of the training pathways to begin a career in this industry and the value of science, technology and resourcefulness in this sector.

Feedback

Students and staff were amazed by the complex operation of ROV’s beneath the sea and completed a survey following the presentation.
Comments by students included; “What I enjoyed most was the experience to learn about new job opportunities.”

“I thought the presentation was very informative and offered me a very interesting view into Oceaneering as a company, it’s projects and the general operation of an ROV.”
