Strathclyde Student Mona

I chose Electronics and Electrical Engineering because it has this really cool combination of coding and computing and physics and electronics. You get to learn about physics and you get to practise it in your electronics degree where I deal with different circuits. It really opens up a lot of different jobs after university."
