AGATA SUWALA, RESEARCH ENGINEER

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.

I was very impressed with the whole experience working with Steve and Dave.
They came onsite, listened and then saw the problems we were having with our process. We explained how we wanted the process improved and they delivered with a number of solutions.
I cannot fault their commitment, brilliant work for the Brilliant Factories project.
