BEng (Hons) Instrumentation and Control Engineering

'My degree has definitely assisted me.'

I can honestly say that the skills developed from the degree have definitely assisted me within my role. My role involves being responsible for the effective, safe leadership of all EC&I aspects of the projects and affairs of Asset Management. I am also responsible for all associated planning and management of both day-to-day and longer term activities and initiatives, as well as providing advice and support to other members of the team within a field of expertise.

Having studied part-time at the University for the past four years, I have found the course and overall facilities excellent. Handling both a full-time job and the degree has been challenging at times, however the understanding and support from the lecturers was very good.

Teesside is well known as a town full of engineering activities, so I find myself fortunate to have a highly regarded University where I could study engineering so close to home.
