Student Story: Igor
30 January 2018 (by Sero Creative (SeroCreative))
Meet Igor one of UTC Leeds engineering students.
He decided to join the UTC to pursue his interests, in what he felt was a more advanced environment: ‘I have always been interested in computing and mechanics. This school is advanced and has lots to do with computers, electrical engineering and science. My old school wasn’t good for this; the teachers here are experts.’
Igor only joined the UTC this September but is already settling in; he sees the longer hours at UTC as a bonus for his studies: ‘If I stay here for four years it’ll be like getting an extra year of education because that time adds up. I hope to get the highest grade I can.’
He’s most enjoyed learning about electrical engineering: ‘The thing I’ve mainly enjoyed is the electrical side of engineering because I like working with components. I like seeing what’s going on behind a screen.’
