Stephanie Udeogu

Stephanie Udeogu
BEng (Hons) Chemical Engineering

I enjoy different things about my course, but I think the most interesting thing is the projects that I do. My course is a really project based, which you don’t really get at other universities. We have 6-7 weeks of research to pick a topic then you have an intensive week where you work in a real company, doing real projects and working towards a deadline. It is difficult but it gives me the opportunity to go into these companies and prove I can do it.
