            • 1983-1985, BSc (Eng)

              I graduated back in 1985 and recently attended the 30 Year reunion of the Mechanical Engeering Class of 85. There's not doubt that it was and continues to be a very demanding and tough course. That said the rewards are high and even now people continue to be impressed that I hold an Imperial College Engineering Degree. Whether you end up fully utilising your engineering knowledge or not, successfully completing an Imperial College degree stands out on your resume.

            • 1975-1982, PhD

              I studied for my BSc at Imperial and continued on for my PhD in High Energy Physics. I still use the lessons I learned there. The work was challenging and I have always been grateful that they demanded (and encouraged) the best from me. I have never forgotten being told that the purpose of an education is to teach you to think.

            • 2010-2011, MSc.

              Without a doubt, I have to say that the year that I've spent at Imperial has been one of the best of my life. The decision to accept their offer has made such a big difference in my personal development and my career. I got tremendous education from all of my teachers, who are leaders in their research areas. I still apply most of the concepts that I learned here in my day to day job at Microsoft. While studying here, I've met some of the brightest people in the world and I believe that I've learned just as much from them as I have from the classes that I took. In my discussions with various persons, whenever I mentioned that I got my Masters degree from Imperial College London, it has opened so many doors for me. I am very proud to be an alumni of this amazing college.
