Working at Instron
I am an Electronics Engineer within the Electropuls team carrying out research and design on new electronics to help improve our products.
I also spend time supporting the Electropuls business team when they are working with customers on special requirements and custom projects.
What does your role involve?
I have been working at Instron a little under 3 months now but I worked here previously for a year during my degree on a placement scheme within the Electrical R&D team.
The time I have spent at Instron has been invaluable and given me a huge insight into the practical world of Electronic Engineering which is something you can’t learn whilst at university!
The company is producing cutting edge testing equipment right here in the UK and it’s a great to be a part of the team behind the design of these machines.
How did you become a Support Engineer?
I studied for 5 years at Brunel University including a Foundation in Engineering and then a 4 year course in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with a year in Industry here at Instron. After working here for a year I was offered a graduate position once I had finished my degree.
"You can’t beat experience! Having some time in industry allows you to apply what you have been learning and also see the practical application side of it."
"Make the most of every opportunity as you never know what it might lead to! "
