The University of Strathclyde 2016-2021
MEng Electronic & Electrical Engineering
In third year, I achieved 72%, putting me on track for a Distinction in my MEng degree.
Notable aspects of the course:
• EE317 – Renewable Energy Technologies. The class acted as an introduction to many
renewable technologies but also furthered mathematical and problem-solving skills.
• MS418 – Project Management. This class taught the basics of project management, a
skill that can be implemented in many different aspects of industry.
• 19498 – Fourth Year Individual Project. Feasibility Study of a Micro/Pico – Hydro
Scheme in Central Scotland.

My name is Kirk and I am a student about to undergo my final masters year in Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde. I have an interest in hydro power, and undertook a “Feasbility Study of a Micro/Pico Hydro Scheme in Central Scotland” for my 4th year project.
I am looking for an opportunity to apply some aspects of the knowledge gained within my course in a practical sense, and to gather a further understanding of what the role of an engineer working in hydro power/renewables industry would entail.
I am not necessarily looking for any financial gain, I would rather appreciate the opportunity to gain practical experience working in the industry.
