"Successful completion of the foundation degree meant that I was able to progress to the final year of the BSc (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Systems* degree at University of Plymouth.
For this, I decided to take a one-year sabbatical from South West Water so that I could concentrate on the course full time. I graduated with a first class honours.
As a result of my success, I received a promotion at work where I am now an Energy Engineer, working as part of a team that manages South West Water's significant energy consumption and efficiency.
I specifically deal with electricity meter installations, electricity supply contract management and maintenance aspects, including vibration monitoring of our various water and sewage pumps around the region and other mechanical machinery."
