I have studied a range of engineering subjects including in-depth modules in thermodynamics, engineering materials selection and mechanical design which has provided a solid knowledge and skills foundation which I am able to build upon as I embark and progress in my engineering career. Throughout my years at university I have been consistently developing both my analytical and communication skills through group work and projects and have gained invaluable experience, knowledge and technical skills in industry through my two summer placements.
I am driven to be innovative in my approach to tasks; have excellent oral and written communication skills; always open to change and continuous improvement and a strong work ethic. In my final year at university I took a number of level 5 classes which I believe would align well with a graduate position working within the energy sector, such as ‘Pressurised Systems’, ‘Engineering Risk Management’, ‘Energy Resources and Policy’, ‘Electrical Power Systems’ and ‘Nuclear Power Systems’. During my time on my recent summer placement in power generation at SSE, I was heavily involved in commercial activities and in regular contact with consultants on a high value project at Sloy Hydro Power Station. As an intern I was primarily involved in asset assessment, tender evaluation, hydraulic performance calculations and providing technical support to the on-site engineering teams – in the process I have gained invaluable knowledge related to power generation. My 5th year group project aimed to assess the feasibility of using significant renewable generation capacity on an urban community in Scotland with a view to the possibility of a future Scotland opting for a similar energy generation mixture – displaying my passion for sustainable solutions and environmentally conscious engineering design. My 4th year dissertation involved the stress analysis and design of piping components used in the nuclear and power sectors, in the process familiarising myself with the current relevant industry codes. I extended my knowledge of piping and pressure vessel design through the ‘Pressurised Systems’ class I attended in my 5th year at university. This has provided me with a strong understanding of pressure vessel design and material behaviour as well as knowledge and skills which would be beneficial working within the energy sector.
I am very flexible and proactive in my approach to work and combine both the ability to work well in a team and self-develop as I progress in a role. By always envisioning the bigger picture whilst improving on small details meticulously, I have been able to be efficient and successful in any task I apply myself to.
