“We get so much help and you never feel like you’re wrong – you’re just learning. I feel like I’m making progress every day and I’m getting better and better at what I do. I had the opportunity to do some work experience at British Airways in the servicing and repairs department which encouraged me to work harder to achieve my goal of becoming a civil engineer.”
"In the future, if I do well I would like to become an engineer. I'm more interested in the design side and I enjoy using CAD so I would probably specialise in this area. The good thing about the course is I can learn the basics and then choose what to specialise in later."
