(Student Profile)

Simranjeet Singh

Following the completion of the bachelor’s degree, I always wanted to expand my knowledge in the field of telecommunication. Loughborough University gave me a perfect opportunity to expand my knowledge in this field and I was enrolled for the course “MSc in Mobile Communications” at the Electronics and Electrical engineering department where I learnt under the guidance of some excellent professors. Personally Prof. Jonathan Chambers and Dr. Robert Edwards were the ones who I spent most time with either during the modules or as a part of the Industrial project. Prof. Chambers being a brilliant man and a great role model not just helped me learn about Digital Signal Processing but was also a great source of inspiration during the period of job search. He was one of my top references while filling the job application forms as he had faith in my abilities as a quick learner and hardworking professional.

"Dr. Rob Edwards is another person who turned out to be a great inspiration especially during the industrial project with Des19n Limited, Loughborough. I had the privilege of him being my principal supervisor for the project. He was always a great source of inspiration and a helping hand whether it was the project, modules or job search. The industrial project with Des19n Limited where I worked on Microwave Antennas was something that helped me in the most important transition from a student into a professional.
