EEE in the Real World 26th April 2018
I am five months in to my placement and I think I’ve got a good grip on this ‘adult work life’ thing. I’ve been working on a deep underground rail station that’s being built in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Super cool, I know! And I’ve had the opportunity to use lots of new software and some software I learnt to use in university too.

Student Experience 12th April 2018
During my first year, I asked Professor Trevor York at the end of a lecture, whether one can become a competent engineer if they are not socially conscious. He replied: “If you gain knowledge, you transform yourself. If you apply it for the common good, you transform the world.” As engineers not only we design and build the world but we also shape its socioeconomic future through our cumulative efforts.
