     KeywordsGained an MSc in Satellite Communications and Space Systems, have a particular interest in RF design, manufacture and test. However I am keen to work on any part of a satellite / spacecraft

     A well organised and enthusiastic Engineering MSc graduate, looking for a career with a company that offer a challenging yet rewarding engineering position.


    Professional Experience

    Project Manager                REACT Engineering                        Cumbria


    September 2010 – June 2011        


    REACT Engineering are a small consultancy firm that produce a range of documents to facilitate various operations at the Sellafield Nuclear site in Cumbria. My role at REACT Engineering involved liasing with customers and various departments within Sellafield, to attain information which allowed me to produce documents such as:


    • Plant Modification Proposals
    • Functional Specifications
    • Business Cases
    • Technical Reports*


    * I have produced confidential documents and attained P4 security clearance.


    Recent Professional Experience

    Project Engineer                  Tesla Engineering                    West Sussex


    June 2010 – September 2010


    Tesla Engineering is the largest company in the world that produce magnetic gradient coils for the high energy physics market, making components used in particle accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners.


    After the completion of my MSc exams in June of 2010, I worked part time as a Project Engineer for Tesla Engineering (during this time I produced my MSc thesis). My role involved supervising a production team, liasing with customers, suppliers, the in-house machine shop and other departments within Tesla Engineering. I was also able to spend some time working hands-on along side the production team, which I enjoyed.



    Technical Documentation Engineer   Tesla Engineering   W.Sussex


    June 2009 – September 2009


    During my 2009 summer job at Tesla Engineering, I was given the task of producing a Technical Procedures Manual to encompass every assembly, build and test procedure used throughout the company. This document is now being used as a key source of information by the management, drawing office and production teams.


    Passed Professional Experience

    Fitter / Assembler                  Tesla Engineering                   West Sussex


    September 2001 – September 2007     


    During my time at Tesla Engineering, I was involved in the assembly, test and development of Magnetic Gradient Coils used in medical MRI scanners.


    Within my first year at Tesla Engineering I was chosen to work on and assemble prototypes. I took an active role in assessing and improving the assembly and test procedures required for production. This also involved training members of staff on the new procedures that I developed for the products, as they moved from prototype into production.


    A have experience of working with professional engineering drawings, 3D models and assembly documents. I have used precision electrical test and inspection equipment such as; LCR metres, Oscilloscopes, High Voltage Insulation measuring devices, Magnetic Alignment Instrumentation (hard & software), fluid pressure testing equipment, thermal imaging cameras and so on.

    Whilst working at Tesla, I have operating heavy-duty overhead cranes and have also worked overtime when required (weekends and night shifts).


    Recent Education.

    MSc degree subject: Satellite Communications & Space Systems.


    October 2009 – September 2010                             The University of Sussex    


    Having held a full time job (as an assembler / fitter) at an engineering company for six years prior to going to university, has given me the opportunity to work as part of a team within the work place. In doing so I learnt the importance of good communication, as well as the benefits of planning and prioritising the tasks in hand. The last two skills have helped me greatly, not just in the workplace but also in the management of my university studies during times of employment.


    Studying engineering has given me an insight into the mathematics involved in the design, test and analysis of various systems, allowing me to carry out some design, test and analysis of my own. During my time as an engineer, I have gained experience in using a number of computer software packages and have used these skills over the last few years. In particular the project for my MSc thesis, in which I designed, manufactured and tested a defected ground plane microstrip band-pass filter to operate within GPS frequencies.

    The engineering software packages that I have experience in using are:


    • MatLab
    • Solid Works and Auto CAD
    • MultiSim and OrCAD
    • SimUlate (production time analysis)
    • Chipwise (Transistor design/simulation)
    • Eagle (PCB layout design)
