"I highly recommend taking a year in industry to anyone. It has nothing but advantages and provides for a break from the university life, along with a fresh perspective on courses and projects upon completion."

 Constantin Neacsu

MEng Aeronautical & Aerospace Engineering 
Cummins Turbo Technologies, Manufacturing Engineer

Constantin wanted to undertake a year in industry to show potential employers, when graduating, that he knows what it takes to be part of a company, to increase his chances of gaining employment and provide a smoother transition from university life to a full-time career. He has gained confidence and knowledge in dealing with real life situations that he will utilise when he returns to university for his final year. 

Constantin has developed a whole range of skills: interpersonal, communication and presentation as well as technical, computer and IT skills. He has also increased his commercial awareness, gaining an understanding of how things work in a large corporation which interacts with a wide range of suppliers, customers and situations on a day-to-day basis.
