Student Profile(s)

Dan-Adrian Corfar

During my final year of bachelor’s studies, I had often found myself thinking about what the next best move would be for me. I knew I was going to pursue a Master’s degree, but I was not sure which one would suit my high expectations. I really needed a great challenge and after doing some research on available courses, it felt like the Structural Engineering MSc (Eng) offered by the University of Leeds was the best fit. The impressive results from UK and world university rankings were also appreciated incentives.

I was very impressed by how much effort Professors put into supporting students to innovate and how passionate they are about their fields, engaging everyone rather than making you feel like you are just there to listen and take notes. Socially speaking, I really appreciated the opportunity to meet people with very different cultural backgrounds than mine. It really broadened my perspective about the world we live in.

I would advise anyone thinking about starting this course to equip themselves with a lot of ambition, enthusiasm and patience. Also, do not hesitate to contact Alumni for more information; sometimes small details about the course could prove meaningful for someone undecided.

Overall, as with all good things in life, it gets tougher before it gets easier, and with this course, in particular, it never really gets easier. The field of Structural Engineering can be very challenging, especially as you can often get lost in so many technical details. Nevertheless, anyone who is passionate about finding solutions to complex problems will most definitely find a lot of satisfaction by the end of this course.
