My journey towards becoming a Structural Engineer

After I had completed my undergraduate degree in Kenya, I wanted to pursue a postgraduate programme which would give me the confidence to practice in the field. I had a chance to visit the University of Plymouth and immediately knew that this was the place that would mould me into the engineer I have always wanted to be.
