While working as an Aerospace Engineer, Sushmita Chanda participated in the online course Air Safety Investigation. Read about her experience.

What was your motivation for enrolling in this course?
I have always been very keen on gaining a better understanding of the domain of aviation safety and how investigations are carried out. Another motivating factor for choosing this course is that I would like to work in an aviation safety position in the near future, and a course certificate from TU Delft would surely be a valuable addition to my academic qualifications.

How would you describe your online learning experience?
I never knew online courses could be so much fun! What I loved the most about this course was the way it was presented in the form of a journey through ancient Greece. The professors have been supportive throughout the course and made the learning experience both interesting and enjoyable.

What did you think of the online learning environment?
The course structure was highly organized, gave enough time each week to understand the key concepts and also meet the assignment deadlines. The progress tracking was quite systematic too with regular feedback from the professors. Interacting with other participants from diverse professional backgrounds was quite a rewarding factor. I got a chance to learn about many other aspects and regulations followed in the industry in other countries.

I would recommend this course to anybody who is interested in aviation and would like to know more about aviation investigations. If you are a working professional and wish to undertake a course which fits in with your own time availability, this course is for you. And the biggest plus point is you do not even need to be from an aviation background.
