Graduate Profiles

Rebecca Board, BSc (Hons) Audio, Video and Broadcast Engineering, BBC

"I was encouraged by the university to do a 'Year in Industry'. I secured myself a year contract with Carlton Television in Birmingham as a Technical Operator where I worked in maintenance, post-production and transmission for CITV as well as for local programming. On completion of this I also did six weeks engineering training with the BBC in London with the Satellite News-Gathering trucks.

The electronics and video production projects undertaken at university stood me in really good stead for these placements. The 'hands on' element on this course is important experience, combining it with a good knowledge of technology and electronics makes it invaluable. I am currently completing my final year and look forward to starting my career in September. I have been given an unconditional offer of employment with the BBC in London as a Broadcast Engineer."
