Dharan Sofat was born and raised in New Delhi, India and moved to Tauranga to enrol at Otūmoetai College. I did my first year at the Tauranga campus and then studied at the Hamilton Campus.
"Civil engineering is something I have always wanted to do since I was a child. I have worked hard to get here and I am glad that Waikato is giving me the opportunity to pursue my dream.
"Making heaps of friends and performing fun and challenging experiments were the highlights of my first year. I've also gained more confidence in public speaking due to all the presentations I've done as part of my course - that's been a real bonus."
Dharan has good advice for new students looking at studying engineering. "Focus hard on your studies, take every opportunity to up-skill, and enjoy the experience of university and making lots of new friends."
