Student Profile(s)

Miguel Drummonds

As an overseas and mature student my aim was to get enrolled in a UK University that has a world-class reputation for Mechanical Engineering. Being in a diverse student environment was also one of the criteria on my list. I did an in-depth online research of all the universities in and around London that offers my choice of study and made applications to and was successfully made offers to them all. I attended open days at all these institutions. Brunel first sparked my interest through my online research, however, on attending an open day I became so excited, felt at home and could not wait to become a Brunelian. Brunel’s facilities were second to none of all the universities visited. The friendliness of the academic staff that I met was simply amazing.

After three exciting years at Brunel I successfully completed my BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering. For that reason, I never wavered in my mind on deciding which university I would spend the next year as a Postgraduate student. The Masters in Advanced Mechanical Engineering at Brunel is highly challenging, especially for me as I was juggling between family life and university life. However, there is always a drive to continue as the contents of the modules are very interesting. The course captivates your mind in such a way that one is curious to see what is coming next. The course is also relevant to what the industry is seeking from graduates in terms of the kind of real-life analysis that is carried out. Students also have the opportunity to use many different sophisticated software packages.

Brunel University has become a very happy part of me. So far I have no regrets that I chose to study at Brunel. I would not hesitate to recommend postgraduate studies in Advanced Mechanical Engineering at Brunel to any prospective student.
