Thomas's Experience



Achieved First Class Degree in Aeronautical Engineering

I looked at university places by using the UCAS website and considered Bristol before deciding on Farnborough because of the better student to lecturer ratio. The class sizes are much smaller than at most universities and it is easier to get one to one support at Farnborough.

I studied Maths, Physics and Geology at Gorseinon College in South Wales before moving into a student house in Farnborough when I started my degree course. My one month work placement was at an Aerospace company in Maesteg, South Wales where I helped implement a total productive management scheme.

The final year project on conceptual design was the best part of the degree and I feel I gained knowledge and experience of the industry as well as having fun and making friends on the course.

I am now working as a graduate design engineer and would like to gain a masters in Engineering and gain chartered status.
