What do you do?

I work in the Assembly Systems team at the MTC. I mostly deal with automation of assembly tasks in aerospace industry. Automating manual processes is a challenging and exciting task where you get to take an idea through to concept, design and testing.

I am also responsible for developing innovative drilling processes to be used on the MTC's PKM machine.

How did you get there?

I always knew I would be doing an engineering degree. I enjoyed playing with LEGO blocks and fixing things with my Dad.

When it came to choosing a degree, I knew I wanted to work with robots, so I chose Mechatronics for my BSc and then MSc. I have also completed an MSc in signal and image processing.

After university, I joined the MTC on a graduate scheme, and after one and a half years I moved to a Research Engineer role.

New high spec equipment and software for research projects is continually coming into the business. This gives many training opportunities and with work being so varied I don't think I would ever have the opportunity to get bored at the MTC. The MTC is also very determined to progress engineers to chartered status. This supports my development but also awards me with an internationally recognised qualification.
