My name is Tshiamo Seforo, a recent (BEng Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering graduate from the University of Johannesburg. During the course of my studies, I have been part of the UJ Choir, and in hindsight, I recommend that (especially) in the University context, academics ought not be the only thing in the mix, as I have been afforded the opportunity to travel, network and make memories with a plethora of amazing and skilled people across numerous industries. Furthermore, having begun my academic journey in 2015 and only finishing in 2022, the instances of failure have taught me to value the process of refinement and to appreciate the detours; rather than berating oneself when one falls, it is imperative to get up, but with a graceful attitude, and with the grit and hope that if one sows graciously, they shall also reap bountifully (generally!).
Upon graduating, though, I received an offer to work in the Netherlands at a juggernaut manufacturing company called ASML, as a EUV System Qualification Test Engineer.
I would like to profusely thank ISFAP for not only their gracious sponsoring even at Final Year level (which is pretty difficult to secure), but also their efforts to equip their graduates with the type of support that makes success more probable than otherwise.
