Subsea & Pipeline Engineering

The University really encourages every student to get involved outside their studies. Last semester I joined the rugby team, which helped give me something outside of my studies to focus on.

To any students out there who are thinking about coming to Strathclyde for their masters, I would say do not hesitate. The University helps you out on each step, from your application to your funding and then when you are finally here. It would be a great decision that you could make for yourself.

Advanced Mechanical Engineering

The university’s student union hosts plenty of clubs and societies for every sport and hobby that exists and it's extremely easy to find something I love. The transition in the architecture of the campus from old to modern reminds us of the advancements that we’ve had and the privilege that we are bestowed with.
