Aviation Engineering BEng(Hons): What our students say

Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

William Arinz

Name: William Arinz
Course: Aviation Engineering (previously Aerospace Engineering BSc)

"Aviation has been a big part of my life; I was often selective with school trips to RAF bases and aviation museums. I decided to enrol at Kingston University as it was one of a select few universities that had a wide range of aerospace courses in both aeronautic and astronautic fields. Having attended in 2010 it has truly shaped who I've now become, especially after being heavily involved with a number of societies. 

This included the cycling society, taking part in Kingston University's 10 mile TT where I took the number one spot in the first year and subsequently the British University Championships 25 mile TT. I was honoured to be part of the Kingston University 'Astro' club firing and supporting tests for small solid propellant rockets.

In my final year I was able to join the international society getting to know individuals of different faiths, origins and interests, however aerospace engineering at Kingston University has truly contributed most significantly to where I'm currently at, where I attained a first class in my final year dissertation. 

I also won a runner up cash prize and an award on my graduation day for the individual engineering poster competition.

Soon after starting my final year, I applied and received conditional job offers from Thales UK, Airbus UK and Shell. I'm now currently working as a systems engineer within flight simulation. I write software for flight simulators which often involves travelling across the UK and the world most notably northern England, Scotland and Dubai. Having been back at the University since leaving, I've been providing students with interview support at Thales. Two of those I supported are now working full time in the avionics division, in both apprenticeship and graduate roles.

In my spare time I fly light aircraft, after carrying out flying lessons most notably in Cessna 152s and Piper 28s. 

I've also supported Thales with flying drones during open days, and am now taking my drone licence."

Course: Aviation Engineering (previously Aerospace Engineering BSc)

"I come from a small town in India with big dreams to achieve. From a very young age, I wanted to go to London to further my studies. There is a profound heritage about aerospace in Kingston University and therefore, I chose to study here. I will be always grateful to the support I received from Kingston University and especially to the course director, Dr Sing Lo. The University helped me to grow both academically and professionally. I started working with Starling Aerospace in 2016, before even completing my MSc and since October 2018, I joined Pall Corporation as a certification engineer. I believe that I am made in Kingston."
