Society Representative (Academic)
Hello! My name is Raiyan. I am a 2nd Year Student studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering and also Academic Society Rep for 2021-2022. My role is to communicate between the SU and the academic societies representing their views and opinions. Getting involved in Academic societies outside of lessons is a great way to deepen the understanding of your course alongside meeting people from other years. Joining academic society other than your selected course helps us broaden our horizons for knowledge but also network with people outside your course.
My aim is to strengthen this networking relationship by aiding more society collaborations. If you have any queries, feel free to email me. Oh, and my favourite sport is Badminton.
