          • 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 utilizing your engineering knowledge or not, successfully completing an Imperial College degree stands out on your resume.

          • 2002-2002, B.S.

            Excellent educational experience. Great scientists teaching the most advanced topics.

          • 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.
