Undertaking a postgraduate research degree can be a very exciting and daunting experience. The aim of this paper is to relate some of the experiences and reflections of a first year postgraduate engineering student. There have been other articles written on the PhD experience, however I believe that this paper offers insights into the industry based project experience, the benefits and drawbacks of multiple supervisors, and it offers the perspective of a student on an early point of the postgraduate learning curve.
