Kidderminster student encourages other budding engineers
A SUCCESSFUL Kidderminster A-level student who will study for an engineering degree says it is “important” more young people take up the subject.
Seb Hudson, 18, was accepted on to a chemical engineering course at Nottingham University last Thursday after achieving A, A, B, in chemistry, physics and maths respectively in his A-level exams.
The King Charles I School student said he wanted to “make a difference”.
Mr Hudson said: “I want to get into the research side of things, particularly into energy, and help with the oil problems because it is something that needs to be done.
“I like the challenge of it – learning how stuff works, why it works, how it works and I know a lot of people who have been put off it when they are told how hard the work is. It is important though because we need it because of the economy.”
Headteacher Tim Gulliver said he had seen an increase this year in the number of youngsters going on to study engineering degrees.
He said he wanted to help engage more youngsters in apprenticeships in areas such as engineering.
“I was listening to a radio discussion on the improvement in the European economy and central to this is Germany’s well-established engineering base,” he added. “Britain has much to do here.”
