Why did you become an engineer?: I’ve always been a keen cyclist, this has given me a fascination of all things mechanical. Building and maintaining my own bike was where it all started. Design and optimisation of components and systems shows what can be achieved and to be even a small part of that is what attracted me to engineering.

What advice do you have for people considering an engineering graduate scheme?: Throw yourself in at the deep end, engineering is about problem solving so find some problems. Don’t stick to the parts of engineering you are good at, take opportunities while you can to learn and develop in the areas which you are less comfortable in. Engineers have a vast range of skills and to be a good engineer knowledge across as many of these as possible gives you a massive advantage
