Engineering student at the University of Aberdeen

I chose to study here because Aberdeen is the energy capital of Europe. Studying at the University of Aberdeen has enabled me to interact with like-minded individuals in the oil and gas industry, be it students, lecturers or professionals. I also like that the University has a large international community.

At Aberdeen, we have a shared sense of pride in the University's past, combined with an ambition to make the next chapter in its history even more successful. That makes Aberdeen an exciting and very special university to be a part of.
