Domjahn began his Boeing career in 2015 as an intern through the Boeing Defence Australia Summer Vacation Program while studying a Bachelor and Masters of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering with the University of Queensland (UQ).
Boeing Defence Australia chief engineer Stephen Hudson said Domjahn’s achievements underscored the importance of partnerships between industry and universities to provide career pathways into aerospace.
Working alongside many of us who have completed the doctoral journey has been the Director of our Centre for Professional Practice, Dr Kay Kimber. Dr Kimber’s scholarship, support and wisdom has done much to shape the strength of our research practice. She was awarded her PhD from the Queensland University of Technology in 2002 with a thesis entitled Technoliteracy, teacher agency and design: shaping a digital learning culture.
Just retired Dr Keith Treschman is our most recent doctoral graduate. He was awarded a PhD by the University of Southern Queensland in 2016 with a thesis entitled: Astronomical Tests of General Relativity.
The first Brisbane Girls Grammar School staff member to be awarded a Doctorate while working at the School was Dr Sally Stephens, our long serving Director of Science. Dr Stephens was awarded a Doctor of Education (EdD) degree by the Queensland University of Technology in 1999 with a thesis entitled: Coordination of empirical laws and explanatory theory using model-based reasoning in Year 10 science. Since then many have followed.
In addition to his coursework, Domjahn established the University of Queensland Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Design Challenge team, completed his thesis on sounding rockets at the Mobile Rocket Base with German aerospace centre DLR, undertook an exchange to Purdue University in the US and is currently the Secretary for the Australian Youth Aerospace Association.
Aviation Week and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) collaborated with universities around the world to identify the top 20 students who are pushing the boundaries of science.

Developed by the University of Queensland in 2008 and designed originally for PhD students, the Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition in which students have only three minutes to present a compelling speech about their research and its significance. The competition gives students valuable practice in editing and condensing difficult research, and an opportunity to excel at a public presentation of that research, using non-specialist language, to their peers, professors, and the public.
“He’s a great example of Boeing working in partnership with universities to support the next generation of innovators to pursue an exciting career in the cutting-edge, high-tech aerospace industry.”
