I joined Strathclyde University September 2013 for Masters in Marketing Program.
Before joining University, I had a few preconceived notions about the lifestyle
and the teaching modules in UK. Some good some and some not so good.
But Strathclyde, has been the perfect choice for me as well as for many other
Strathclyde- being located in the third largest city in UK with a thriving multicultural
population, an opportunity to learn and explore. The course is good and the modules
are taught by some of the best professors in the university. The amazing facilities
and usage of technology both to academics as well as leisure gives students like me
different experience and pathway to a professional and successful lifestyle choice.
I joined Strathclyde as an MSc student in the Department of Biomedical engineering
and have been doing my PhD since 2012. Being the first time in a foreign country,
I felt really concerned about having to talk to the Profs and lecturers here. To my
surprise, I found that they were really nice to me and made me feel confident during
my conversations with them. Only later that I had understood that if we have a talent
that stands out and you have the capability to display it in a professional manner,
the University recognises it and encourages us to progress further in the field. The
students who take the available opportunities to their advantage at Strathclyde have
always had a wonderful progress in their career.
"Pertaining to studies I personally that this one year (2012-13) was the best
experience I've had in my education career. It was a very refreshing experience
having been exposed to a new culture which is so extravagant. Moreover I met a lot
of people from diverse background during my course tenure.
Having studied in India where books and exams take priority, to study in a new
atmosphere where technical writing is considered to be important was really helpful.
Even though it was quite hard at the beginning of the course, during the latter part
especially during the project phase it was quite easy for me to elaborately write a
technical thesis. Apart from this, I personally learned how to undertake a research
prior to any assignment.
Meeting the alumni before departing was quite helpful because we came to know
about Glasgow well in advance and moreover about the issues going on in that
place, about the university life and many other things"
MSc Sustainable Engineering: Renewable Energy Systems and the Environment.
My first trip abroad was to Glasgow to get my Masters in Engineering Design.
University of Strathclyde gave me one of the best years of my life, Scotland turned
out to be a beautiful country with warm people and a lively accent.
I was able to tap into the vast knowledge that the university has accumulated over
the past. I was under the guidance of highly qualified faculty members and I learned
the tricks of the trade so to speak, the multicultural and multi-disciplinary nature of
the students is a perfect platform to learn to work as a part of the team and learn the
know how's of team building.
DMEM (design Manufacture Engineering Management) offers a wide array of
multifaceted programs and top tier facilities for its students, courses are designed
with industry standards and practice in mind, an opportunity to work on design
projects with industry partners.
One can experience Scotland's rich culture by visiting places such as Edinburgh,
Loch Lomond and the Scottish highlands boasts some of the best scenic place in the
"Strathclyde helps me to deepen my knowledge and skills in managing
innovation both strategically and operationally. I enjoy the cross-nationalities
and cross disciplinary nature of the programme"
Truly a place to learn!!!!
The 12 months that I spent in Glasgow to study at Strathclyde Business School was
the most rewarding and unforgettable experience of my life. Learning from peers
representing different nationalities with diverse work experience is very significant
value addition of my stint at Strathclyde.
The project is very challenging phase of any post graduate program at Strathclyde
University, which is known for rigorous and pioneering work in academic research.
My group won the bid to pursue MBA project in a Business transformation consulting
engagement with one of the US based fortune 500 companies in UK. Our group
spent 6 months, out of which 3 months to work on the proposal and its defence to
secure the internship and the remaining 3 months extensively on the project. Our
hard work was rewarded when our group of 3 members were awarded the Roy
Jenkins Prize for the Best MBA Project of the year 2011-12 out of 250 cohorts
submitted from 9 International centres of Strathclyde Business School.
I was also given an opportunity to pursue coursework at Emlyon Business School
in France as part of an exchange program. Therefore, I visited France and Geneva
and have wonderful memories of my exchange program. In short one year MBA at
Strathclyde is exhaustive and enriching program. Work Hard!! Play Hard!! Looking
back my parents have no regret and also consider that this is the best investment
they have made for me in terms of returns on a long term basis.
