    This Project is a Pre-Phase A study into a long term Mars Mission with an emphasis of reusable vehicles, ISRU technologies and logistical development.

    During this project I was elected to the role of Systems Engineer for the study of a reusable Mars Ascent and Descent vehicle, undertaking this role I oversaw a team of 7 other students with respect to integration and supervision of the technical outputs of the work packages, and collation into technical reports that where presented to Industrial sponsors including Thales Alenia Space, Italian space agency and ALTEC.

    During the course of this project I have gained valuable experience through contact with tutors and experts from the industrial partners who were incredibly helpful in finding technical solutions and verifying models we produced.

    Skills

    IT - I am very familiar with the Windows OS, obtaining an A grade in GCSE ICT and I am familiar with most Office software.

    Customer Relations - Customer relations skills were paramount at the Oxfam Shop; I learnt a great deal about how to handle customers from my experience there, as well as how to operate a till in the retail part of my role. This experience was furthered in my role as a residential adviser where I often had to deal with high pressure and conflict heavy situations whist on call.

    Team Work - I have learnt valuable teamwork skills through my experience working in Oxfam, my time at Army Cadets as well as in my Duke of Edinburgh awards where the environment can often be challenging and working as a team is incredibly important.

    Time Management - During my 3 years at the Army Cadet Force the importance of good time management and punctuality was reinforced.  This taught me to manage my time and prioritise my daily tasks in an organised way.

    - The above experience informs my dedication and enthusiasm to work hard as well as a strong sense of commitment to any job I engage.

    - excellent written and verbal communication as developed from  communicating with students and colleagues from many different backgrounds and cultures.
