LEVEL OF STUDY
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.
Surrey PhD student Daisy Shearer is an experimental physicist working in quantum technology at our Advanced Technology Institute.
Bowei Li is a PhD research student at our Advanced Technology Institute who originally studied for his undergraduate and masters degrees in China. At Surrey, he's working on next generation solar power cells and he’s just had his first academic journal paper published.
Studying for my masters enabled me to stand out when looking for job opportunities, and it is now proving to be useful when dealing with everyday challenges at work.
Doing the MSc gave me the skills and knowledge to go beyond superficially writing code based on what has worked for others, allowing me to understand the depths of what I was doing, which has empowered me to make informed decisions.
I chose the University of Surrey not just for my course’s league table position, but after visiting the campus and seeing the facilities. That made the difference in making Surrey my first choice.
