Student Profile(s)

Dipsetu Dey

Why did you decide to study masters at the University of Leeds?
I definitely wanted to study my master’s in the UK but I wasn’t very sure about the choice of university. I conducted an extensive research on the universities and found the University of Leeds. It was exactly what I needed – a world class university with one of the best engineering faculties in the country. Also, it seemed that my course was tailor-made to suit my requirements. The IET accreditation was an icing on the cake!

What has been the best aspect of studying on your course and at the University so far and why?
The best aspect definitely has to be the positive learning environment of the School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering where the students are enthusiastic to learn and the professors are also equally enthusiastic to teach. The first aspect that I liked about coming to my course, is all the modules have a wide variety when it comes to the content. We did data communications in the first semester which was about the internal functionality of the internet. Whereas in the second semester we were studying media engineering which was related to image and video Compression – but this is just a small example of the diversity of the modules in my course.

Another good aspect would be that I am getting to learn new things almost every day – PCB design using EAGLE, packet capturing on the internet with the help of Wireshark, Verilog Design using Quartus are a few of them. These are the tools that are used in the industry nowadays, so it’s also productive from the employability point of view.
