Laura Maybury

3063.jpg Engineering was something I wanted to do. Upon completing A-levels I started my Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering degree and four years later I graduated. My love for engineering had been further enhanced by completing a sandwich year at one of the top defence companies in the world.
Upon graduating I joined a different defence company in a very specific sector, one which I didn’t know much about. This was an important turning point in my career; the realisation that you will never stop studying or learning. Working towards completion of a trial, having undertaken a lot of learning along the way I realised that I missed studying. I loved my job but wanted to study alongside as well.
My boss was completing a degree through the OU and encouraged me to have a look at the courses on offer. I had the opportunity to make a difference in my own future which would lead to career progression, a further degree and the key component I was missing, working towards becoming chartered through the IMechE.
The OU Masters of Engineering degree was perfect for me. Its hard work but worth it! You are completely supported through the use of module websites, wiki pages, tutors and easy to use platforms and forums. All of the module requirements and the learning outcomes were clear from the beginning and the high quality resources were brilliant.
Within a week of submitting my last piece of coursework, I had secured another job. Earning my MEng through the OU has enabled me to start on the journey to fulfill a lifelong ambition. I am now employed as a Graduate Tutor at a university and on the road to earning a PhD, something which would not have been possible without the OU. I’d always fancied doing a PhD and having completed my Masters I had the studying bug; but the OU enabled me to see that it was possible to maintain both a job in industry and my love of learning.
I tell everyone proudly that I completed my Masters through the Open University and I would recommend the journey to anyone. The hard work and dedication required is far outweighed by the fun, the new life-long friends, the learning a lot about yourself and the sense of achievement at your graduation.
