As part of the team, I have worked on projects for several DNOs, such as investigating the root cause of failure on electrical assets. These projects came with the responsibility of using several materials characterisation equipment including the scanning electron microscope, and a low powered optical microscope. Working with this equipment has given me a better understanding of how they work whilst improving my technical skills. As my department has Consultants specialising in different engineering disciplines not related to my degree, I have widened my knowledge through working with them and through independent research. I have contributed my time to other departments which includes the marketing and sales teams. This opportunity gave me an insight into how various departments work together to make the company successful.

Doing a placement has helped me realise what field of engineering I want to pursue. EA Technology has nurtured my passion and has provided me with impactful, hands-on experience and the opportunity to maximise my future career potential through working alongside talented Consultants committed to helping graduates like myself to learn and succeed. In addition, I feel the skills that I have gained give me an advantage as I go back to finish off my Master’s degree at Imperial College London later this year.
