BETHAN SMITH, ADVANCED RESEARCH ENGINEER

What do you do?

I work in the Non-Conventional Machining theme focusing on post-processing for additive parts.

I manage and work on multiple projects involving state-of-the-art reviews, experimental trials and results analysis.

I also propose new project ideas and research new technologies that we can use at the MTC to solve customer problems.

How did you get there?

I enjoyed maths at school but wanted to do a more applied subject at university, so I chose to do a mechanical engineering degree.

As part of my degree, I did a year in industry with Rolls-Royce. As part of this placement, I was seconded to the MTC, which gave me experience of the company.

When I graduated I applied to join the MTC as a research engineer, as I loved the idea of working on a range of different technology areas with an industrial focus.

The MTC engineers have been working alongside our team. We’ve all been impressed by their modest attitudes and exceptional knowledge. As a result, we’ll be manufacturing components that couldn’t previously be made.
