What made you choose your course?
Well, when I started I didn’t really have an idea on what I wanted to do, but I knew I liked Aerospace so chose subjects around that area. Once I got into second year, new opportunities opened up such as the Build a Plane project and Robot challenge.
What did you most enjoy about studying at Petroc?
I enjoyed being a part of STEM, Build a Plane and the Robot challenge. It’s a bit cheesy but I enjoyed all the learning, the teachers have been great and the experience as a whole every day has been amazing. I particularly got on with Dave (physics) and Gemma (Maths) and Debbie (chem).
As well as this, I won the Student award in Excellence in 2022-23.
Do you have any future plans?
At the moment I’m going to Southampton University to study a Masters in Astronautic and Aeronautics Engineering. My end goal is to get into space industry, be a rocket science and work on rocket motors. But I might find something else along the way!
