Meet our ACSE students

Deirdree 

Applied Computational Science and Engineering Student DeirdreeUndergraduate degree:
BEng in Design Engineering, Loughborough University

Why did you apply for the Applied Computational Science and Engineering MSc? 
I heard about it whilst I was looking for Master’s courses both at Imperial and Swiss universities. I was keen to pursue my studies doing a mix of programming and energy/sustainability. When I was accepted onto this course, I thought it was an amazing opportunity to acquire strong technical skills to then work in the industry that I am passionate about.

What do you intend to do after you graduate? 
I want to work in the energy industry, probably starting as an Energy Modelling Analyst or Data Scientist.  

 

Adanna

AdaUndergraduate degree and institution: 
B-Eng Mathematics and Computer Science, Imperial College London

Why did you apply for the Applied Computational Science and Engineering MSc? 
I wanted to do a course that applies my Bachelors degree to real-world situations

What do you intend to do after you graduate?
I think I will work for a bit as a Software Developer Engineer or go into research. 

 

Oliver

Oliver Boom, Applied Computational Science & Engineering Student

Undergraduate degree and institution: 
 Aerospace Engineering, University of Bristol

Why did you apply for the Applied Computational Science and Engineering MSc?
The course seemed to be a hybrid of mathematics, computer science and data science all while being extremely focused on applications. The benefits of having a formally structured course has been massive, and having a strong computational background means that your force multiplier is much stronger going into industry.  

What do you intend to do after you graduate? 
Either space mission concepts design or data-driven strategic consulting. 

Richard

ACSE Student RichardWhy did you apply for the Applied Computational Science and Engineering MSc? 
To gain industry relevant coding skills so I could pursue a career as a data scientist.

What do you intend to do after you graduate? 
I hope to pursue a career as a data scientist in the finance or consultancy industry.

Mingrui

ACSE Student MingruiUndergraduate degree and institution:
Bachelor of Engineering, major in Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering

Why did you apply for the Applied Computational Science and Engineering MSc? 
Imperial College London is a world-leading institution especially in engineering. Its high academic reputation really attracted me. The Applied Computational Science and Engineering programme focuses on theories of computational science and practical coding skills, which are exactly the abilities that I wanted to improve.

What do you intend to do after you graduate? 
I enjoy spending time solving challenge problems and exploring new things so I would like to take a PhD after I graduate. The skills and knowledge I learned from the course will be a great help to doing research in the future.
