Minds of Many

Patrick Downie, Cohort 2014

It was 8 am on a cloudy Saturday morning in September - too early for any university student to function at full capacity. As time passed on the way to our destination, thoughts of coffee and bed turned to excitement. What mysteries lay ahead at the 2014 SELA bootcamp?

The first thing you notice as you pull up to Shrigley Hall is its impressive and imposing 19th century fa├žade. The second thing you notice is the expansive view, stretching all the way across Manchester. The third thing, in our case, was our SELA mentors rushing out to greet us and usher us into this land of leisure that was to be our home for the night.

Off to Bootcamp we go!

On the last weekend of September, eighteen second year MEng students will head off into the Peak District for an intensive leadership skills bootcamp. The students are members of the Sheffield Engineering Leadership Academy (SELA), an extracurricular program which aims to help our engineering undergraduate students to become engineering leaders of tomorrow, who create positive impact in research and industry.
