The guidance I have received during my EngD has been next to none. The opportunity to work with academics with so much experience and contacts has been so helpful.
The scheme gave me a solid foundation of essential transferable skills whilst granting me the responsibility, freedom and flexibility I needed to develop my own interests and pursue my own goals.
Highlights would be the variety of small projects I have had the opportunity to be involved in as part of my university research group. Also being part of the RR EngD network committee.
I feel very fortunate to have been surrounded by exceptional people throughout my career. Every day is a school day!
