A mechanical engineering degree is very versatile, allowing a graduate to pursue a career in a wide range of sectors. I found the units on offer for the course at Manchester both interesting and challenging; allowing me to develop my knowledge at a well-respected university.
I took part in the Undergraduate IMeche 2010 design challenge where I worked in a team of four to design and build a centrifugal pump capable of pumping water up a 2m pipe. It was a very enjoyable experience which helped improve many of my basic skills and allowed me to meet some interesting people in the engineering sector.
During the summers of my first and second years, I undertook internships at Lloyd’s Register and The University of Manchester respectively. Both internships allowed me to experience what it is like to be a working engineer and apply the knowledge I have gained to practical situations.
I am the Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) coordinator for Mechanical Engineering, through which I meet like-minded people from different disciplines and allows me to help mechanical engineering students in the transition from college to university.
