“I love creating solutions to solve real-world problems using computers. I’ve always had an interest in learning new things and problem-solving, so I chose to pursue an engineering career because the digital landscape changes every day bringing new challenges.”
Lewis Smallwood is a highly ambitious first year Computer Science student. His entrepreneurial aspirations include setting up his own digital design and engineering firm to help solve problems using technology on a large scale.
His entrepreneurial drive caught the attention of the selection panel of the Tamar Engineering Project (TEP), and secured Lewis a place to receive financial support throughout his study here plus invaluable one-to-one mentoring from a high-level industry professional.
“When I heard the news that I was accepted onto the Tamar Engineering Project, I felt completely thrilled and excited for all the opportunities the project will unlock,” said Lewis.
“The strong industry links the project provides in the engineering field, will allow me to build on potential employment prospects and to get involved with other young engineers.”
