What appeals to you about Electronics?

Electronics as a field appeals to me as it allowed the advancement of human society as we know it and will help with future problems such as climate change through continuous innovation.

Why did you want a scholarship with Collins Aerospace?

I accepted my scholarship with Collins Aerospace as it provides me with excellent industrial experience and besides this, I have always been very passionate about aeroplanes and their systems, and hence working in a field involving those was very desirable.

What type of work have you been involved with during your placement?

During my placement I worked on designing a test fixture for an oil cooled channel. For this I made use of CAD and it taught me how to plan out a project start to finish and coordinate with a team. I loved the working environment and the diversity of the projects provided by Collins.

What are your hobbies and interests?

As a first generation immigrant who arrived to the UK 5 years ago, I never could have imagined that I will be in such a fortunate position so shortly after arriving here. It is with the help of organisations like UKESF and industry partners that us young people from disadvantaged backgrounds can pursue our interests and develop a career early on.
