"In summer 2010 I participated in a student exchange program IAESTE where I got a placement in Swansea University. The campus is next to the sea and the beauty of the Gower peninsula made a lasting impression. After two months in the professional environment of the College of Engineering combined with a very interesting industry-related job, I made my choice to study here.
I have discovered the wide variety of courses Swansea University offers to PhD students to help with their work on the dissertation, as well as good information resources in the library. I should also mention that the university has a very strong software and equipment base which is very important for engineering students.
The University offers a wide variety of part-time course, so one can learn foreign languages, for example. There are also different travelling options available in the University’s travel office. I had an exciting trip to Stonehenge and Avebury which I will never forget.
I hope that the well known high standards of education at the College of Engineering, Swansea University will help me to succeed in my future career in industry."
