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.
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 support offered by the University of Surrey to me as a Clearing student was brilliant.
For me, the most enjoyable parts of the course are the lab experiments and projects. Whether it’s an individual or group project, the satisfaction of putting things together and building something that works – from scratch – is a unique feeling.
Being a campus university, Surrey feels like a community, which definitely helps when you are starting out as a Fresher.
Having the chance to learn about the cutting-edge research our lecturers are doing is really valuable and adds a lot to your skills and knowledge as an engineer. Throughout your time here you get to form professional relationships and network with researchers and engineers at the top of their field.
