          • 1975-1979, PhD, Surface Science

            Finally a real Univeristy for our times. Starting out as a technical college, Brunel has grown and developed to excel in many fields including engineering. I was involved as a member of Senate and University Court so present when Royal Holloway College and the Rambert Ballet School brought more depth and universal coverage to the academic (and practical) applications of learning. The philosophy continues.

            Great Then, Brilliant Now. I graduated way back in 1974 when the Campus was small and students few. As part of the very first intake into Biochemistlry it has been good to see how the department has evolved and continues to thrive. YBrunel graduates enter the workplace with a sound technical basis and a well developed understanding of their place in their subject and where it can take them. YFor a Degree that prepares for the real world Brunell stands amongst the leaders.

            My three years at Brunel were great. Not only was the course taught by an expert faculty, but the professor's were always available to help and support me. The campus had a lot of facilities for students, from coffee shops to student grocery shops and an on-campus doctors office and pharmacy. And most importantly, it has a lot of resources for graduates,especially with their important industry connection. A lot of my fellow Brunelian graduates found work a few months after graduation.
