Sam (United Kingdom)

Gain valuable experience and life skills that will add to my degree in Aviation management

Coventry University
Lawrie (United Kingdom)

By getting involved with Bridging Gaps I hope mainly to give myself a company or area of study to really focus on and gain a deeper understanding of the inner workings. University work has left me slightly wanting in terms of applying my knowledge to meaningful scenarios with real consequence, it feels as though I am just learning theories and how to pass exams.

Loughborough University
Nicholas (United Kingdom)

Experience in the engineering industry and hopefully a good knowledge of what career path to take once I've completed my degree. I hope to apply my engineering knowledge into real world projects and hone in on my skills as an engineer

Loughborough University
Carlos (United Kingdom)

I have a background in Mechanical Engineering and a MEng in HVAC, electrical facilities in building and energy efficiency. I also concluded an international course about renewable energy and hydrogen technology in Germany as Erasmus student. Currently I am working on my final dissertation for my MSc Environmental Sustainability at Edinburgh Napier University. I am looking for an opportunity to gain experience in the engineering and sustainability field. I am open to work in any position that allows me to acquire more work experience related to my studies, and being able to put that knowledge into practice.
