Postgraduate electronic and electrical engineering students with equipment

I chose the University of Sheffield due to its great reputation for engineering courses. More specifically, I chose electrical engineering because I had conducted an electronics based final year project for my undergraduate degree. I wanted to continue studying electronics and gain further knowledge in the field.
