Hear from Mr Bashir Oladele Jimoh
A bit about me:
- Before starting my PhD at the School of Engineering, I worked as a Maintenance Engineer with Nigerite LTD (Division of Etex group) in Nigeria. The desire to continue my academic journey was activated in 2012 and I decided to resign from the aforementioned company to embark on a PhD program at University of Warwick.
Why I chose Warwick for my doctorate:
- I chose Warwick for my doctorate, because my dream to pursue a doctorate program was triggered when I received a departmental scholarship from the School of Engineering. My time in Warwick during my Master's program between 2009 to 2010 was memorable, so it was easy to accept the scholarship for the PhD program.
What I liked best about my time at Warwick:
- My time at Warwick gave me an opportunity to make new friends, carry out research, learn about different cultures and make good use of the state of the art facilities available at the University of Warwick.
After completing my doctorate:
- On completion of my program, I intend to delve into academia or research and development sector.
If I could time travel, what advice would I give my younger self, when starting a PhD at Warwick?
- Start early and make good use of resources available at the University of Warwick. Never give up and be tactful throughout the years of research.
If you were to describe your time at Warwick in just 3 words, what would they be?
