Student Quotes

“I decided to study at the College of Engineering as it is a highly reputable engineering department.

My favourite memories of the course are the practical aspects and the lab work. Group projects have given me the opportunity to work in a team to overcome engineering-based problems. Studying at the College of Engineering has given me a good knowledge of engineering principles and has helped me to apply this to real life problems.

As part of my time here, I took part in the IAESTE programme. I worked with the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Manipal, Southern India, on a development project involving an irrigation system.

My future plan is to get some experience in an engineering firm, and hopefully, this experience will allow me to work abroad for an NGO on further development projects."
