Jordan's Profile

Name: Jordan D’Costa

Department: Aerospace

Course: BEng Aerospace Engineering

Year of Study: Second

Nationality: Australian

Favourite school subjects: Physics and Physical Education
Why I chose Aerospace Engineering: Always been fascinated by planes and all things related to aviation. Wanted to do something science related but not a science course. Aerospace was the perfect combination of these interests.
Favourite parts of my course: Doing case studies to get a feel for what kind of work real world aerospace engineers are subjected to. Our lecturers are involved in current research and are highly respected in their industries. Variety of modules including Mechanics, Electronics, Control and Materials along with Aerospace specific modules. 
University opportunities: During the summer of 2011, I went on a 5 day treasure hunt across Europe in a team with two friends against 10 or so other teams. This was run by the Union’s fund raising department which was such a great experience and I raised £300 for local charities. The university also offers plenty of schemes to get involved in promoting your subject area and can include paid opportunities.
Activities outside university: I play Australian Rules Football for the local Sheffield team. There are many things to do in this city and this is just one of them. I highly recommend getting involved with local groups of any nature as they are a great way make many new friends and escape the “university bubble”.
