Biography

I was given the opportunity by my employer to further my education, and Petroc was the obvious choice as it is situated not far from my place of work. The lecturers are not only very knowledgeable but are supportive and approachable.

As a design engineer at work, I wanted to study a course that I would not only enjoy and find interesting but would be relevant to my day to day tasks as an engineer. The variety of modules I studied gave me the opportunity to learn so much that it essentially made me a better engineer.

The second year of the HNC was particularly enjoyable when I undertook an engineering project; I used the skills and knowledge I had gained at college, to produce a final drawing pack for manufacture that achieved a high final grade.

Since completing my HNC I have completed further exams and courses to help me focus on a career in design engineering.
