Vikram’s MSc in Automation, Control and Robotics landed him his dream job

I’m currently working as an assistant electrical and automation engineer with Primetals Technologies Limited, in Sheffield, after completing my master in Automation, Control and Robotics at Sheffield Hallam. When I interviewed for the job, I realised the company was working with the same technology I had been using in the lab on my course; so my experience at SHU definitely had a direct impact on my career!

Before I came to Sheffield, I was working in automation for a firm back in India. I wanted to become more attractive to employers and knew that studying my masters abroad would give me a competitive edge.

Meeting new people here in Sheffield and immersing myself in a new culture has enhanced my social skills and given me a wider perspective on the world. Early on, I decided to work as a student ambassador for the International Career Enhancement Club, which offers support and guidance to students from overseas. I gained a wide circle of friends and became more confident and independent.

I’m really happy in the new role I’m in, and really glad I was able to stay in Sheffield – it feels like home now.
