Student view of Engineering with Finance MSc

"The extent to which engineering studies values and cultivates problem-solving skills, along with a strong mathematical background and how these skills can be applied to the financial sector is of particular interest to me. Knowing that when I finish my studies I will be equipped with the skills necessary to tackle modern problems in a wide range of industries inspires and motivates me to intensify my efforts. "
