Inspiring Graduate

"I chose Huddersfield because the lecturers are recognised in my chosen field of study and the Centre for Precision Technology is also recognised as a top quality research facility. I like that all my modules have a class and practical/tutorial session. In the tutorial session especially, mathematical equations and scientific theories everything comes to life as I get to see them in action through hands-on guidance from the tutors. My modules are full of new cutting edge subjects which are the results of the many research efforts of the module leaders". - Kelechi Okegbe, Graduate
