Omada Rail Systems is proud to announce the commencement of our graduate program.
As of this week, we have two newly graduated engineers joining our team. Nicolas Soilleux & Nathan Murray are both enthusiastic and eager to begin their journey of becoming signalling engineers. We will be providing valuable hands on experience, while maintaining a strong focus on the importance of our values at Omada.
Our program has been specifically designed to be an ideal starting platform for graduates to begin their careers in the rail industry. With no previous experience in rail, our graduates will be exposed to the complexities of this industry. Over the course of the 3-year program, our graduates will be provided with all the support they need. During years 2 & 3 of the program, Nic and Nathan will also be undertaking the post graduate diploma in railway signalling, setting them up perfectly to to become signalling engineers at the end of the program. In terms of practical work, our grads will also be involved in design, testing and construction work.
Nicolas has recently graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), majoring in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Over the course of his degree, he has shown himself to be highly motivated and detail oriented, with effective coordination and communication skills. Nicolas is proficient in a range of coding languages including C, Python, and Java. Skilled in many areas, he has experience in circuit design and analysis, PCB development and soldering, machine learning techniques, 3D printing and laser cutting.
Nathan has recently graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours), Majoring in Aerospace and Electrical Engineering, from Queensland University of Technology. He recently was an Engineering Intern for Aviation Australia. Nathan has also been involved in numerous undergraduate projects and a Graduate Thesis; he was involved in a seven-member group that was required to design and build a UAV for a specific task, in this case gas detection in a mine shaft. He works well both within a team and autonomously to set and achieve goals as per his deadlines. He has developed excellent time management skills and important interpersonal skills with both co-workers and clients.
By the end of the program, Nicolas and Nathan will have a thorough understanding of rail signalling principles as well as competency across all major Australian operators. We will be providing updates on how Nic and Nathan are getting on over the course of the program.
