Full profile

Joe Staniford
Design with Engineering Materials
BEng 3rd Year (Finalist)

I chose Loughborough for a number of reasons. Firstly, it has a world class reputation in both Engineering and Sport. I wanted a University that was well respected for my subject and course to stand me in good stead in the graduate job market. At the same time, I wanted an experience outside of the lecture theatre too.

Loughborough has an incredible sporting history with unrivalled facilities and opportunities. The Department has a great reputation in the Engineering world and this is shown by the excellent links we have with some really prestigious companies (JLR, Bentley etc).

I enjoy the fact that my course is always evolving and tries to produce engineers who can have a real impact in industry. We don’t just focus on learning from the past, we’re encouraged to shape the future.

Now I'm about to graduate, I’ve secured a long term internship in the Securities Division of Goldman Sachs’ London office which gives me the opportunity to learn about buying and selling financial instruments from some of the World’s brightest minds.

During my interviews, it was clear that an Engineering degree from Loughborough was really well respected. It shows you have an aptitude for learning, can think analytically and solve problems whilst still being a rounded and sociable individual with your own story.
