Course: Electrical Energy Conversion System [MSc]

 

I decided on this course based on the contents of the programme; I wanted to learn more about electric systems and wind turbines, areas that nowadays are leading the industry.

The thing that I really like about the course is the access we have to discuss topics with lecturers. We can ask questions via email and we can make an appointment to get individual feedback. I think this is something that shows how much the University cares about students understanding what they are learning.

I'm part of the international society which offers the opportunity to share my culture and, of course, the chance to interact with other international students. Through the society I have developed my communication skills substantially and I have learnt about other cultures.

To study in a country where technology is more developed than in my country is going to be advantageous when looking for a job. Furthermore, The University of Manchester is one of the best universities in the world which will be a plus for my CV.

My advice to students would be that they have to be ready to work very hard because, as it is a one year programme, the assignments and projects involve a lot hard work.
