I studied Architectural Engineering and now work as a graduate building services engineer. VU helped me get to where I am today by providing me with a lot of practical experience – something that is unique in the industry. VU brought in a lot of real life engineers, building practitioners and leading technologists to run sessions with us on how the industry works and the kinds of skills employers are looking for.
