LEVEL OF STUDY
Space, stars, and the underlying science behind them has always been fascinating to me. I have always had a desire to tinker and build projects. Combining these two passions fitted perfectly into my degree.
I feel empowered by my time at Surrey and feel able to thrive in a challenging but incredibly rewarding field.
I knew Surrey would be a good place to do a PhD as the Institute for Communication Systems is a world-leading research centre with an outstanding reputation.
Having an experienced supervisor in my research area has been invaluable to me throughout my PhD journey... their unwavering support and encouragement have significantly boosted my self-confidence, especially in times when I needed it the most.
The University embraces and adapts to new technologies and that impressed me.
Lab sessions are the highlight of the course for me. Being able to apply the skills and knowledge I’ve gained to something tangible is extremely satisfying. I spend time calculating, designing and deliberating – and it’s the most rewarding of feelings when it all works out.
The course outline was my favourite out of all the different universities I was considering. The amount of practical work was a big factor because I like the hands-on work our laboratory modules provide.
The Centre for Vision Speech and Signal Processing, or CVSSP as it’s known, is a great place to undertake a PhD in machine learning or machine perception. It has a diverse range of research groups all with their own areas of expertise.
Who said you need expensive equipment to prototype your projects? I have been using development boards, breakout boards and breadboards to prototype and start designing my future projects.
