Alasdair is currently in his final year of study at the City of Glasgow College. He will soon graduate as a fully qualified Marine Engineer.

As a part of his talk with the students, Alasdair let students know about engineering in general, explained what life was like working on a ship for extended periods of time and studying in the UK. His talk was extremely informative and was very relevant for our students as they start to look ahead and plan their future careers.
