Engineer Profile: Agata Suwala
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.
