Having studied at Brunel and getting international exposure, as a graduate engineer I was assigned with major responsibilities in my first job and I was able to successfully address it without any concerns.

Why did you choose to study at Brunel and why would you recommend Brunel to others?

Brunel is one of the most recognised institutes in the UK and globally. It has always been well known for its quality and well-balanced education system in engineering and technology, hence why I choose Brunel and will always recommend it.

Being able to represent Brunel in the Shell Eco Marathon in Germany - it was the first time for the UK and Brunel to participate in this international competition.

If you could give one piece of advice to current Brunel students, what would that be?

Balance your education and personal life efficiently, as the courses at Brunel are already well balanced between theory and practical’s / projects. Please enjoy the studies and practical's and make the best use of this education system.

We should always have high expectations and goals in life, but we should not expect everything as soon as we graduate. Please try getting connected to alumni in your respective fields and explore new opportunities and guidance.
