“Apart from engineering drawings, I developed many other skills that will benefit me professionally. I chaired numerous meetings, arranged site visits to new suppliers, sourced relevant information, designed numerous parts and custom tools to automate the assembly process, and learned how engineering is approached in a commercial environment.”

FERGUS MOORE, 3rd year business, university of Strathclyde, scotland
“On my second week [...] I'm whisked away to ‘scrub up’ and find myself standing in the back of an Operating Room with cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, and nurses, watching heart surgery. Although it was extremely warm and tiring standing for two hours in there, it was an amazing thing that very few people ever get the chance to experience.”
