"Electronics is one of the broad aspects of engineering which integrates with any sector, and so my decision to study Electronics in one of the top UK Universities with a great student life meant that I chose York.
I enjoyed the coursework, especially programming, and presentations (which involved team work) even though they were challenging with critical deadlines. After I graduate, I intend to work in the industry and put all my knowledge into practical use. During my years of studying, I have learnt that electronics is not difficult and can be so much fun if you get the right assistance.
Being a female in this sector hasn't been as challenging as I expected. Due to the fact that there is about 1:10 ratio of female to male students there is a high chance that one's group partners are mainly (if not all) male. There is a small number of female lecturers in the department, which is encouraging, and it's easy to relate to them, but all lecturers (male and female) are very helpful and encouraging."
