Adeleine Watson

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)/Master of Engineering
Liveris Undergraduate Scholar

Adeleine is studying an integrated Bachelor and Masters of Engineering, planning to specialise in chemical or civil engineering.

She graduated from Somerville House in 2020 as Dux and Valedictorian of her cohort. During high school, Adeleine was given the opportunity to represent Queensland at the UN Youth ‘Voice’ Public Speaking Competition, where she broadened her perspectives on leadership and social advocacy. Adeleine is passionate about the important contribution of young peoples voices in society, and developed this during her time as Sports Prefect, voluntarily coaching and mentoring teams of younger students.

Adeleine has always had a keen interest in all things maths and science, participating in a range of activities including the International Mathematical Modelling Challenge, Queensland Maths Summer School and Junior Physics Olympiad throughout high school. These programs provided her with valuable insight into the value of STEM to solve a range of sustainability challenges, something she is keen on developing further with the Liveris Academy.

Adeleine is interested in using her engineering education to address issues arising from climate change. In the future she hopes to design and research more sustainable transport solutions, including investigating the use of renewable fuels.

Outside of her studies, Adeleine loves playing sport, cooking and spending time with friends. She is honoured to be part of the third cohort of Liveris scholars, and is looking forward to commencing her journey at the University of Queensland.
