ALISA DUNCAN, WORKSHOP SUPERVISOR

What do you do?

I supervise three teams within the MTC workshop.

My teams make parts using novel manufacturing techniques and then analyse them in the lab to check the quality.

It is my responsibility to keep the teams running smoothly, to make sure we deliver top quality work and keep everyone happy.

How did you get there?

I always enjoyed maths and physics at school, but wanted to do something more practical and less theoretical, so I did a degree in engineering.

My enjoyment of hands-on work led me to become a Technician at the MTC, and from there I progressed to Lab Supervisor and the Workshop Supervisor.

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.
