Electronic Engineering degree for Ralph

Ralph Maclumbe from Zimbabwe has graduated with a BEng Electronic Engineering, First Class degree from Bangor University.

Thrilled with his degree, Ralph said: “My A levels didn’t go as well as I had hoped but after speaking to the School of Electronic Engineering at Bangor University it was agreed that I would be accepted on to the course. I applied to the School of Electronic Engineering because of its research ranking, 2nd in the UK and also the small class sizes, which were very important to me.

Ji Wu

First-class degree for Ji

Ji Wu from China graduated with a first-class BEng Electronic Engineering degree this week.

Extremely happy to be graduating, Ji said: I came to Bangor on the Beijing Institute of Technology 2+2 programme. This meant that after a year of study in my home town in China I then came to Bangor to complete my degree. I struggled at the beginning with the language mainly and so my tutor Dr Iestyn Pierce suggested I retake the first year so I could really get to grips with the technical aspects of the course. I am so glad I took his advice as I learned so much, and now I have a first class degree and am going on to study for an MSc in London next year.

David Nicholas - Master’s Degree in Electronic Engineering (MEng)

"Having graduated from Bangor I often look back on the university years as some of the best years of my life so far. Being a student you are encouraged to socialise with fellow students and join groups or teams of students with similar interests. I thoroughly enjoyed the student lifestyle of studying, playing and partying at Bangor, with various pubs and clubs and plenty of alternative activities provided a vibrant nightlife and seldom a day without an activity such as hiking, mountain climbing or simply chilling out."
