“Who or what was the inspiration for choosing your current course
of study?”

I’m currently studying in my final year of a Software Engineering (MEng) degree, and I have absolutely no disappointments or regrets in having chosen to study this course. Hopefully, by the end of this essay you will have gained some idea of why I chose to study this particular course, and also see that the decision was not as simple as you would think.

I was a very curious boy when I was growing up (I still am come to think of it!), which meant that I would be thrilled when my Dad would tell me stories of what he had done at work that night. Even now, when I go back home during the holidays, we will relive past habits of sitting at the dinning table and discussing how Dad’s work had gone last night.

This is when I found out that institutions existed to help engineers carry out their roles in a professional manner. I found out from my Dad that you needed certain academic

qualifications and experience to attain the level of an Incorporated Engineer (IEng). I then came to find out that to achieve the highest level, a Chartered Engineer (CEng); you were required to have a minimum four years education and four years professional job experience. Whilst I was studying A-Levels, the time had come to start applying to universities. Both my parents fully supported my decision to pursue a career in engineering, but as I had later found out, my Mum had been secretly hoping that I might have chosen to do Medicine as a degree course, as Mum had liked the idea of having a doctor in the family! However, I was still undecided on what type of engineering course to do. I was tempted by the Aeronautical Engineering degree course, as I...
