Congratulations dude!

I'm completing my Masters (dual - coursework) atm and people keep pressing the idea of a PhD, unfortunately just the thought of writing a thesis scares me so I don't think I'll be doing that anytime soon. haha.

What PhD are you undertaking?

Aerospace Engineering, but since I received a government scholarship I can study whatever I want.
I am focusing on Formula One aerodynamics from a research perspective.

Congratulations man. That's an excellent achievement! All the best...

WNTDVQ: How are you going with your course? I think you have only less than a year to go right? I finish this year, hopefully!

Also, just thought I'd let everyone know. This Sunday is the RMIT Open Day! So if you are thinking of starting a course at RMIT next year, the Open Day will answer many questions. (Before someone does ask; No I don't work for RMIT).

Ahhhh haven't checked in here for a while now!

I've just finished up last semester Salim since I opted to complete a semester across this last summer and took on extra units over the last two semesters.

Will graduate in October with a Bachelor of Business (Sport & Leisure Management) and a dual Masters - Financial Analysis/Professional Accounting.

Got through this program with some awesome grades as well so am pretty happy to say the least.

I must admit it does feel weird not studying anymore though, feels like something is missing. haha.

Nah, you DO finish this year...positive thoughts! lol.

I know the full story on this; it was contracted in the early 90's buy Holden to be a baseline with which to compare the drag coefficient of the VN commodore.
Since then it has been used once or twice by students but mainly gathers dust.
Can't tell you the official results of the study since it's still under Holden contract but ill just say that the VL did a lot worse than the VN.
