USA study option success for engineer
The Vice-Chancellor is photographed talking to final year engineering student, Mayank Vaducha, at a reception following the Department of Engineering Annual Industry Lecture on Thursday, 29 January. Mayank, who is studying Electronic and Software Engineering, was one of the first students from Leicester to take the option of studying at Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York as part of his “with USA” engineering degree. Since then, he has spent a year working in industry at Alstec in Whetstone, Leicester. Mayank found both experiences hard work, but most enjoyable and maturing.
The time spent in upper New York State
gave him an opportunity to experience a completely new education system,
making new friends, participating in events and travelling. He was able to
travel to four major east coast cities during the spring break. Mayank
thoroughly enjoyed participating and performing in university events and
joined various societies like the International Students Association
(Treasurer), Friends of India Association, Institute of Electrical and
Electronic Engineers and Residential Student Committee. He earned his
additional travel expenses by working part time as an academic tutor and part
of an alumni fund raising scheme.
