The University was impressive, particularly the Sackville Street Building. The learning facilities such as the library were very good and the lecturers very friendly and helpful.
The company I was working for before I began this course were keen on me completing an MSc and many of the modules were relevant to my job. Manchester was very close to home and I know that it has a very good reputation for engineering.
The University was impressive, particularly the Sackville Street Building. The learning facilities such as the library were very good and the lecturers very friendly and helpful. Being from Manchester originally, I have always been of the impression that the city is fantastic with friendly people and plenty of things to do.
Most useful are the machines-related modules. Given that I have a genuine interest in this field, I really enjoyed them. I also enjoyed the variety on the course such as the power electronics modules and I feel the material I learnt was relevant to the kind of work happening in industry today.
My CV has greatly improved by studying at Manchester, given the reputation of the University. Other benefits include an increased level of job interest and the fact that my knowledge of software, such as Matlab, has improved. I've learnt more at Manchester in one year than I did in three years at my undergraduate university.
My advice to students would be to study hard and ask for help if you need it. The course is very intense, but help is available from the lecturers, who are knowledgeable and friendly. There are plenty of opportunities to meet new people from all over the world. In terms of a social life outside University though, in honesty, you won’t really see much of one if you want to do well on the course.
