Testimonials from engineering and technology students
Since graduating many of our students have embarked on successful careers. Here are just a few examples of what they are up to.
Adam Tarpey BEng (Hons) Electrical and Electronic Engineering
Product Engineer - CML Micro Circuits
I studied Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Hertfordshire and am now a Product Engineer for CML Micro Circuits.
This involves creating hardware and software for evaluation kits and for companies' chips. I have been able to extensively use my electronic and programming knowledge that I gained for my course.
Kieran Murphy BEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering
Now working for EasyJet Airlines Plc as a Project Co-ordinator
I am now working as an Engineering Project Co-ordinator for EasyJet Airline Plc. My work involves a variety of roles allowing me to travel across Europe.
The major roles include ensuring that the airlines maintenance operations run smoothly across EasyJet's large European network, distributing aircraft components across Europe and working as part of a design team.
The skills I learnt on my aerospace engineering course have been invaluable to my role as it can be incredibly technical.
Mohammed Hasib Khan BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering
Now working for Dorman Long Technology as a Mechanical Engineer.
Whilst studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Hertfordshire I learnt the importance of structural mechanics, using AutoCAD and gained a firm understanding of engineering principles.
These skills have provided a successful transition into my role which involves structural engineering, travelling abroad to train customers with equipment, and FEA Analysis.
Kimberley Buckley MEng Automotive Engineering with Motorsport
Now working as a Graduate Engineer at Acoustical Control Engineers and Belair Research Ltd.
Since leaving the University of Hertfordshire I have taken on the role of a Graduate Engineer at Acoustical Control Engineers and Belair Research Ltd.
Every day I go to work I am doing something different, ranging from acoustical design to manufacturing engineering. I'm using many skills I learnt at University I never thought I'd use, and feel my years at University have provided a good stepping stone from which to start my career and to become chartered.
Bradley Fletcher from Devon BSc (Hons) Aerospace Technology with Management
Now working for General Electric as an Engineering Project Controller.
Since graduating I have begun work as an engineer where I undertake project management. The current project I am working on is the Airbus A350 XWB. My studies relate well to my field of work giving me a great foundation from which to work.
During my time at the University I took the opportunity to join the Student Ambassador Programme and the Technology Mentor Scheme which further enhanced my University experience.
Jack Dudman from Swindon BSc (Hons) Motorsport Technology
Now working for AP Racing as a Design Engineer.
I have joined AP Racing working as a Design Engineer for the Race Clutch Design Group. The primary requirements of the role are the design and development of clutches for a variety of motorsport applications.
Modules I studied during my time at the University such as "FEA" and "Design" are fundamental to my job role. Other modules like "Materials" and "Introduction to Manufacturing" have all been crucial in forming a good base of knowledge for my work.
The University supported me in getting my placement at AP Racing. This experience was invaluable as it underlined the link between university study and real world problem-solving.
