November 2004 –

  • Heading off to India, Thailand and Malaysia for three months. See you in February!

September 2003 – July 2004

  • Started my UNITECH exchange year, kicking off with an eight-day induction in Zürich. Unitech is an exchange program for engineering students from eight of Europe’s leading technical universites. This year 76 students are taking part. We will all be completing a period of study abroad (I’m at TU Delft), followed by an internship in a foreign language area.
  • Currently studying at TU Delft in the Netherlands for my final year of university until June 2004. I am taking courses from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science, as well as from the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management
  • Living with 11 other students in a very tall house in Delft, near the train station. Delft is a town of about 100,000 inhabitants between Den Haag and Rotterdam in the province of Zuid-Holland. You may think I’m crazy to leave London, but it’s actually there’s loads going on here – come visit!

Summer 2003

  • Worked for Accenture on their Summer Vacation Scheme, and was placed with a large broadcasting client in Central Scotland after a one-week induction in the London offices. My accomodation was in Edinburgh, which was fantastic during the festival season. I could have been flown back down to London every weekend, but usually elected to stay in Bonnie Scotland 🙂

October 2002 – June 2003

  • Got through my third year of Information Systems Engineering at Imperial. Basically, it’s Electronic and Computer Engineering. And yes, I always get a funny look when I tell people what I study. They usually follw with “Oh, well you’ll make a lot of money then”, which is nice.
  • I was Chairman of the ISE course society. ISE is currently being transferred from the Computing and Electronics departments, to just the Electronics department, so lots of interesting politcal stuff going on … hmmm
  • As part of an act for the EESoc Revue, myself and Hema Duvvury wrote a ten minute sketch about the rivalry between ISE and EEE students, entitled RomEEE and JulISE. If you’re not in the department, you probably won’t get a lot of the in-jokes. You may not even get them if you are. But what’s important is that people laughed on the night, thanks to the brillaint talent of the actors! People have been asking to see the script, so here it is.
  • I was also membership secretary of the University of London Sub-Aqua Club (i.e. Scuba Diving), which means I got to do lots of paper pushing for about 150 members. In January 2003 I qualified as an Assistant Diving Instructor.
  • And continuing with the random voluntary stuff, I was also a re-app (sort of senior committee member) in an Imperial Hall of Residence, Garden Hall. People say I use this position to influence freshers …
  • And if you really want to know (or laugh), my courses last year were:
    (current ISE3/EEE3/DoC3 may be interested in my feedback)

    • Communication Systems
    • Human-Computer Interaction
    • Databases
    • Digital Systems Design
    • Communication Networks
    • Multimedia Systems
    • Distributed Systems
    • Concurrency and Distributed Programming
    • French (Level 3)
