“I would recommend this course to anyone looking for a firm grounding in engineering.”


Mechanical Engineering

"I wanted to study at Surrey because the University gave me an opportunity to take up a Professional Training placement and I loved the campus and atmosphere. Also, Surrey actually followed up on my application with emails and phone calls; I felt like they really wanted me to come here.

Facilities at Surrey are great. The new library, Surrey Sports Park, design centre and workshop make it easy to study, unwind and take on real engineering projects.

The engineering lecturers are approachable and offer up lots of support and advice. My personal tutor is friendly and always available to help out, and my dissertation supervisor is a specialist in his field giving me invaluable feedback.

A highlight for me was being Technical Director for the Formula Student team here at Surrey. This role gave me tons of responsibility, and taught me how to manage and motivate a team. We were able to successfully design and build a single-seat racing car and compete against different universities at Silverstone circuit.

I would recommend this course to anyone who is looking for a firm grounding in engineering and wants to also take up some great projects as the course develops."
