      About 2 years!

      I fell into an opportunity I had while doing my PhD. I used some tissue models to infect and have a look at the cell responses, and damage caused by my infection, and because they’re so expensive, I wanted to make my own.

      I then wanted to make a more complex model, and collaborated with and spent some time with a group in Sheffield who taught me how to do it, and since then I’ve been using my own engineered models. Its great because I learnt a lot of skills in a short amount of time, which will really benefit me in the future Im sure!

      I have officially been an engineer since i graduated fro Sheffield in 2014, but I’ve been thinking like an engineer since i started that course in 2010.

      Hi Arth,

      I have been an engineer for almost 7 years now! I started studying my degree in engineering (Biomedical Engineering) 11 years ago, I think this question has made me feel old!

      Hi 592arth42,

      I started my undergraduate degree in engineering back in 2007 so I guess 10 years now!
