Where Could Getting Involved Take You?

MEng Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Stephen Turner

Stephen’s involvement with the Students’ Union included holding Course Rep and Faculty Rep roles. He was also Chair of the “Engineers Without Borders” society and volunteered in local schools. He is adamant that such activity was instrumental in launching him onto his career pathway, which currently has him working as a Support Electrical and Electronic Engineer at CERN in Switzerland.

“For me, getting involved with the SU was an opportunity to put myself out of my comfort zone, to try new things, and to meet new people in my spare time. When it came to applying for placements and graduate roles, I had lots of relevant examples I could mention on my cover letters, or in interviews, which demonstrated initiative, teamwork, problem solving, and many other soft skills which employers look for.”
