Ankur Banerjee began his diary with his arrival as a first year student at the University of Surrey. After studying in Singapore and a placement at an electronics design automation company, he now shares his experience as a final-year student researching computer vision processing.
Having graduated, Ankur says goodbye to life as a student, but shares with us the challenges he faced during his final year at university, including dealing with depression.
When not working on his final year project Ankur’s focusing on his professional and personal development by working with university societies and is considering whether to apply for jobs or stay in academia.
Ankur looks back and what he’s learnt from his year long industrial placement, and prepares himself for his return to student life and a much smaller income!
Ankur continues to discover how different working life is from university and is given the opportunity to attend DATE 2012. He also offers advice to students currently searching for internships.
Adjusting to working life after being a university student has been tough for Ankur, but after a few months he’s found his stride and is making the most of his year-long industry internship.
Ankur talks about his summer internship in Singapore and finally finding an industrial placement. He's enjoying working life and all that comes with it and is gaining many new skills.
His exchange year in Singapore coming to an end, Ankur has chosen to stay on for the summer as a research intern. However his hunt for an industrial placement back in the UK is getting tougher…
As a study exchange student in Singapore, Ankur's experiencing different approaches to learning and trying out new disciplines alongside engineering. He's also had the chance to backpack across Asia!
International student Ankur has taken the opportunity to spend a year abroad in Singapore through a study exchange programme.
In a few weeks our end-of-year exams will be held. These determine who gets to keep their scholarships and who has a better academic record to show when seeking positions for the placement year etc.
Arriving as an overseas student, Fresher's Week parties, starting the course and making friends - Ankur's first experience as a new university student.
