      Yes and no. I am the engineer and person I am today because of the university experience I had. There are some things I wish I had paid more attention to, or tried to understand more, as they creep up in my job sometimes! Any university experience will have some ups and downs, you just have to make sure to apply yourself in all areas, have some fun along the way, and be prepared for a little bit of hard work! What would you like to study at university?

      I went a different route and didn’t do my degree when I was younger, straight after college. I’m doing it now and my choice is very conscious and it is educated, tried first career path. So, I would not change it. I would put more effort to get better marks in the first year to then get an overall better mark in the end. Other than that, no changes.

      No, I am pretty happy with the experience I had, and the opportunities an engineering degree has given me.
