Kilmarnock Graduation 2019: Student of the Year for Engineering and Science
It means a lot to be recognised for my hard work
Agata Chmielewska, HND Mechanical Engineering
Before I came to college I worked as a line worker in a factory. I came to college to gain engineering knowledge and improve my English.
I was a bit concerned about the language barrier. However, I enjoyed everything about the course. It was a good mix of theoretical and practical, and I gained many engineering skills.
I feel like I developed as a person. As well as improving my language skills, I feel I have improved my confidence.
It feels amazing to have won this award! It means a lot to be recognised for my hard work.
I now have a modern apprenticeship and so I’m now doing a Performing Engineering Operations course at Ayrshire College.
I hope to finish the apprenticeship programme, qualify as a mechanical engineer, and perhaps apply to be a college lecturer myself one day!
Ayrshire College is a great place to move your career forward.
