A diverse course experience

Studying at the University of Bath was an incredibly enjoyable experience. As someone who is fascinated by the world of engineering, I really appreciated the structure of the course which allowed me to study a diverse range of units. After my year in industry, I returned to complete my degree in Integrated Design Engineering, feeling motivated and with well-defined ambitions about my future career.

Learning technical and transferable skills through student projects

During my degree, I lead Team Bath Racing Electric as Team Principal. This was the perfect way to apply technical knowledge into a real-world project. Beyond engineering, it greatly expanded my skills in leadership, business, communication and much more.

A promising future

I’ve recently started my graduate career working on high-performance cars as a Vehicle Dynamics Engineer at Danisi Engineering in Turin, Italy. In the coming months, I will be moving to the company’s new offices in Munich, to coordinate new partnerships with German vehicle manufacturers, in the capacity of Project Manager. I look forward to the challenges ahead as I continue to gain new and varied experiences to grow as a professional.
