What appeals to me about Electronics?

Electronics is a field that is related to all products in our life including phones, home appliances, and cars with never-ending innovation. A degree in Electronics provided me with the essential knowledge to improve people’s lives with technology.

Why I chose Beko

Beko R&D apply technologies in sensors and robotics to bring efficiency and functionality into home appliances. I always wanted to contribute to research and development to enhance sustainability in people’s daily life. Working at Beko R&D enables me to achieve this by implementing the latest components or a change in design in existing products. R&D is a field that provided me with a strong understanding of the fundamental of electronics in combination with hands-on experience.

My placement

During my summer placement, I was involved in multiple projects including using gas sensors to measure the spoilage level of food and research into simultaneous localization and mapping methods. I gained hands-on experience in producing custom experiment equipment with motors and using microcontrollers including Raspberry Pi, Arduino, and ESP32. Working alongside a small group of talented engineers in the R&D industry taught me how to tackle a variety of technical problems and made me more dependable, agile, and resilient. I had specific tasks assigned but also had the opportunity to help mechanical engineers with their problems in electronics.

My interests

Outside of work I enjoy powerlifting, cooking, and watching Formula 1. I have joined the University Formula student racing term and work as a student electronic engineer. I had an amazing time living in Cambridge which has a lot of historical attractions under its unique academic atmosphere.
