I want to be part of making a change. Intellectual technology surrounds us and there is so much to understand, alter and improve. The future is leaning towards a world filled with robotics, automation and artificial intelligence.
Pursuing engineering with a focus on robotics, will allow me to contribute to new life changing and challenging technologies, it also allows me to put the knowledge I gained during my A-levels into practical application.
My interest in engineering stems from my drive at looking into the way different structures work and learning how the functions of the different components interact. I have always been keen to take different objects apart to understand why they work.
At Edge Hill I received the opportunity to build a robotic arm. I had to put it together from scratch and even wire it. One of my favourite parts of my degree was my computer aided design (CAD) engineering class. I got to explore the production of Formula One cars in detail and build a car on CAD software.
Being part of my course has brought me a greater appreciation of being part of a group of people who have the same drive and ambition as myself. After gaining many versatile skills through different experiences, choosing robotics as the course I want to pursue was clear.
The community at Edge Hill is very accepting. I was nervous about starting university, however after I met my teachers and found my friends, there’s no place I’d rather be. The University has lots of things going such as societies, events, and sports! I love being able to study in the catalyst since it’s open 24 hours every day.
When I graduate, I plan on pursuing a Masters and enter the field of aerospace or medical devices.
