EDUCATION

2019 - 2021

Royal College of Art and Imperial College London

MA & MSc Innovation Design Engineering

I was awarded a place on the IDE double masters program, run jointly by the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London. IDE is a world-leading, interdisciplinary course that focuses on the exploration and development of impactful innovation. I am going to use this opportunity to further develop my design skills to complement my engineering              background allowing me to become a successful innovator. My place is generously funded by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851.
