My years at FOE, MMU were the best years of my study life. I found inspiration in the way that my lecturers explained technical concepts to us, and in how FOE approaches lab-based engineering education. It was at MMU that I discovered the true meaning of what lifelong learning is really about, that learning is not just about getting a scroll, that it does not stop upon graduation. This is why I've committed my life to doing research, to contribute to scientific knowledge. We can truly say that MMU trains students to be of international calibre, capable of excelling worldwide. This is also evident from the frequent news of MMU students being involved in challenging competitions, and the different locations across the world where MMU graduates end up carving their career in. Some people prefer to attach themselves to different universities for each of their consecutive degrees, I chose to do all three of mine at MMU and I would still do so if time reversed itself.

I truly appreciate the creativity of the lecturers in delivering engineering concepts in an interactive and interesting way. The many hands-on lab exercises, and various other opportunities to apply what we had learned in real life, made the whole learning experience more practical and fun! In general, I feel FOE graduates are dynamic, analytic and well-prepared for industry challenges.

I graduated back in 2004, yet the memories of studying in Faculty of Engineering MMU remains fresh in my mind. Not only did FOE give me the best student days of my life and many others that I know of, but it helped develop me into who I am today. I have always thought that FOE provided a potent combination of leading state of the art research facilities, brilliant lectures and delivery techniques, and constant exposure to students who strive for excellence, that makes it a superb place, if not the best place, to develop yourself into a world class engineer. I owe them a debt of gratitude for all this and I am proud to be part of the FOE Alumni!

FOE equipped me with hard and soft skills critical to real working life. I am not surprised that I got a job offer from Agilent half a year before graduation.

Studying Engineering is a challenge, and it is followed by another tough task working in a field few dare to enter. But it is also a privilege -- to be able to do things better, to engineer them to perfection, to share the passion of building the world with other co-workers. FOE, especially with its highly equipped labs, is a place where students passionate enough could explore the possibilities to improve the world. With a little help from well-educated instructors, FOE students can make it all happen. From what I have seen so far in the industry, MMUs FOE students always stand tall even though the industry offers different experiences, but we have been trained to be flexible.
