Roshni Wijesekera

BEng Mechanical Engineering and MSc (Res) Advanced Mechanical Engineering

Fire and CFD Engineer, AECOM

Mechanical Engineering Alumna Roshni Wijesekera"Working in the built environment is fantastic because you can see the work you do all around you."

Andrew Jackson

MEng Mechanical Engineering

Partner, Foster + Partners

Andrew Jackson"The problems I have been faced with at Foster + Partners have varied in scale, from master planning at a city scale down to the design of individual building components like bespoke air diffusers, which necessitate very different analytical and empirical approaches. So it’s a fantastic challenge for an engineer."

Rasan Chandra

MEng Mechanical Engineering with a Year in Industry

Combined Heat & Power Team, British Sugar

Rasan Chandra"I joined the Graduate Scheme at British Sugar after graduating from Sheffield. I secured this by completing my year in industry with its parent company, AB Sugar."
