I worked in the industry for nearly six years before I was unfortunately made redundant. Improving my qualifications had always been a personal goal and this seemed like the perfect time to take on further study. The course offers a good mix of engineering and IT which allows me to keep my options open, and I am now working part time whilst studying.” Chris Campbell MSc IT for the Oil and Gas Industry
