“Who or what was the inspiration for choosing your current course
of study?”

I’m currently studying in my final year of a Software Engineering (MEng) degree, and I have absolutely no disappointments or regrets in having chosen to study this course.

As I like to solve problems, and help people in a real beneficial way, I came to realise that technology can help me achieve this. As we continue to make technical advancements through history, society continues to become more reliant on technology. As you can see from above, the type of person I was had helped me understand that I wanted to do an engineering degree course. Of course, that still means that there are lots of possible fields that I could enter into: Aeronautical, Civil, Electrical, Mechanical...
