“I wanted to discover more. With so many new technologies available to us in the market, it’s important to consider new ways of working. “This is particularly relevant in industry, where there is a strong drive towards higher accuracy, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness.

“My research investigates the use of 3D printing to manufacture microwave devices. With it being an increasingly popular fabrication method, exploring the possibility of new alternatives for prototyping piqued my curiosity.

“I chose to do the ME part-time, so I can pursue my passion for research while still working and gaining industry experience full-time. The ability to do this was one of the driving factors behind my choice to continue studying here. My lecturers and technicians have been extremely accommodating to my work-study situation, and I get the freedom to manage my own time.

"I have two supervisors; each from different Engineering departments, which added depth to my research. I got access to more expertise, resources and facilities, as well as some great industry contacts. They’re very open and flexible to ideas, and it’s interesting to see how many opportunities can arise from just a single conversation!”
