Degree: BEng Engineering (Mechanical, Electronic and Control Engineering)
Present job: Field Engineer with Schlumberger, Indonesia
“I had wanted to study Engineering at Heriot- Watt for many years; however as a subject with so many diverse and exciting options, it was very difficult for me to decide on which route to take! Typically I would have made a sacrifice and chosen a particular interest to focus on, however the BEng Engineering allowed me the freedom to choose a number of different engineering topics that fitted in with both my career ambitions and my personal interests, which suited me perfectly.
“I studied Mathematics, Programming, Mechanical Engineering and Electronic Engineering to begin with, and concentrated on Electronic Engineering and Control Engineering in my final years with the help of an industrial scholarship.
“My lecturers were very friendly and gave me all the help I needed, and I graduated with an Honours degree in Robotics. I received a number of job offers but made the decision to continue my studies and took an MSc in Petroleum Engineering at Imperial College, London. I am now a Field Engineer with Schlumberger, and based in Jakarta, Indonesia.”
