PRITHVI Arumugam had no trouble when it came to choosing a career.

Following in the footsteps of two cousins, two uncles and his grandfather, Prithvi chose to study engineering.

His love for the industry began at a young age when his grandfather, a civil engineer who owned a construction business in India, took him onto a worksite.

"I really grew up with it," Prithvi said.

Now in the final year of his degree, the CQUniversity student is looking forward to the opportunities the merger with CQ TAFE will bring.

Prithvi said he chose to study at the Rockhampton campus of CQUniversity because their co-op program allowed him get experience in the field while studying.

"There's a lot of project-based learning," he said. "I like the community and student environment CQUniversity has."

Prithvi said the merger was good news for students and would mean more university facilities and student opportunities.

"The more diverse range of people on campus, the better," he said.

Here are some videos from the merger celebrations yesterday:
