About My University /College

Why did you choose this university/college?
Because Linton offers mechanical engineering and because one of my strongest subjects is physics. They provide international certificate recognized by UK Coventry University which attracted my parent’s attention.

Where is your favourite hangout on campus, and why?
I usually don’t hang-out on campus. I hang-out at Olympia Raj Gym somewhere nearby the college. This is because I workout and worked part-time there.

About My Course

Who influenced you to choose this course?
Mr. Twinny (Education Facilitator) and my parents.

What is the hardest subject/module in your course, and why?
Instrumentation and control subject because part-time lecturer was hired to teach this subject which caused less time and chances to question the lecturer for further understanding. Besides, lab session assignments were converted into coursework which increased the difficulties of completing assignments (instead of collecting and analyzing data from experiments conducted, end up doing research) which were also an opportunity to learn.

If you were given a second chance to choose a course, would you choose your current course again? Please explain.
I want to be good in everything but the best in one thing under the acceptance of the mindset that there is nothing perfect in this world. Thus, I would like to choose other courses to gain new knowledge.
