Sophie's story

Engineering courses

School of Engineering and the Built Environment

Sophie Vernon's passion for sciences and maths was what made her choose engineering. She very much enjoys the practical aspects of her course and how it enables her to make use of her theoretical knowledge in real life scenarios. 

Living so close to Birmingham's city centre and to Millennium Point, where the School of Engineering and the Built Environment is based, is ideal for Sophie. In her spare time she enjoys cooking as well as networking.

Sophie believes that the skills she's gaining during her studies will make her more employable.
