An alternative route into engineering

Posted on

UWE engineering students, alumni and staff have recorded home-videos to inspire children into engineering. This is the third post sharing some of these videos – you can catch up on two Aerospace Engineering students enthusiasm for engineering in the first post and two amazing women in engineering in the second.

Here we’re sharing a video of Mechanical Engineering student Thomas Brown, who speaks about his alternative route into engineering, emphasising the practical applicability of engineering creative solutions to everyday challenges. Speaking of challenges, Thomas struggled with maths, but has found ways to work through that and now looks with anticipation towards the worldwide potential open to him and his multidisciplinary skillset.
