Why did you choose Aston University? 
I chose Aston because my chosen course has attractive course modules in collaboration with both the engineering and applied sciences school andthe business school. Also, the sandwich course which was not available at other universities I had an offer from, was another reason why I chose Aston.

What did you enjoy about the course you studied? I enjoyed applying most of my learning's from year 1 & 2 in my placement year with Lloyds Banking Group (mixture of both computing & business knowledge).

What advice would you give to current Aston students? I highly recommend individuals to partake in the university placement year. There will be an opportunity to apply most of what you learn in year 1 & 2 in this year. This work experience will also give you a much better idea on what career path you want to take after graduating.

How would you sum up your time at Aston in one word? Fun

What do you enjoy about your current role? I enjoy how my role is client facing in many areas of the automotive industry -IT, Finance, Supply Chain & Manufacturing.

What are your career ambitions for the future? In the next 1 to 2 years I would like to have moreexposure in the consultancy field I am currently working in. I want to work with a large range of stakeholders and on a range of different projects in different areas of the automotive industry. In the next 3 to 4 years I would like to specialize in a specific area of consultancy e.g. SAP consultancy, Data analytics etc.
