What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

I enjoy participating in different projects, both group and individual project. It is always challenging and I learnt a lot from it.

Some of the students were are profiling have in addition to their degree been awarded a departmental prize or award in recognition of their exceptional achievements. If this applies to you please can you tell us about the award you have received and what this award means to you?

I am very honoured to receive the Functional Materials, Manufacturing and Management Project Prize of this year because of my individual project. My individual project is something relatively unique and it is inspired by my supervisor. This award means that my work is promising and my hard work for the past year paid off.

Please tell us if you were a member of any societies, groups or sports clubs?

Formula Student.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

Taking part in Formula Student two years in a roll. Successfully built at least one working racing car. 

What will you miss the most about University?

I will miss my friends the most.

What advice would you give to current and future students? (If you are an international student what would you like to tell future students from back home who might be thinking about applying to study in Exeter?)

 Please go to your lectures, especially the revision lectures. Don’t afraid to talk to your lecturers and supervisor, they are here to help and all of them are very nice. To people from HK: Exeter might be quite boring comparing to HK, but it has lots of nice landscapes and places. Also, I found it very relaxing and chill, definitely a nice place to study.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I am going to further my study in aeronautical engineering in Imperial College London.
