Four inspirational speakers have been in to talk to our engineering students recently.
Speakers from the global companies, Ricardo and Thales UK plus entrepreneurs Mike Jay (Myklops) and Steve Ransom (Brighter Bikes) provided inspiration for future careers and workplace journeys came to talk to final year and postgraduate engineering students. The visitors, all local to the Sussex area, were invited by the engineering department’s Principal Lecturer Richard Morris.
I chose to study Aeronautical Engineering at University of Brighton because the course offered an engaging hands-on approach. I chose to specialise in aeronautical engineering as I was always fascinated by the dynamics of flight.
When I was accepted, I was excited by the prospect of specialising my studies. A year in industry gave me the opportunity to explore my professional interests before finishing my course, adding to the appeal and ithighlighted the areas of engineering that interest me most, changing my ultimate career goals and re-energising me for the final years of my course.
