Lewys Jenkins, Development Engineer for Jaguar Land Rover
"My current role requires the use of the core technical knowledge I gained whilst studying at Swansea, and makes use of engineering management skills in order to deliver projects which are complete effectively and on time.
Swansea provided an excellent foundation in engineering, in both technical and management skills. This, combined with the support I received from the Careers department, has allowed me to secure a position on one of the top rate graduate schemes in the country.
Studying Engineering at Swansea has given me a promising future."
Adrian Koh, Chartered Engineer and holds Professional Engineer status
Adrian graduated with a first class BEng in Electronic and Electrical Engineering and with a PhD in Silicon Carbide Power Semiconductors. He worked first as a senior development engineering for Philips semiconductors, and then with their separated semiconductor division NXP semiconductors. He became a senior principal concept engineer, and was then promoted to International Product Marketing Manager with a focus on concept and technical marketing.
Adrian is now a Chartered Engineer and holds International Professional Engineer status. He also chairs the IET Power Technical Group in Manchester. Here Adrian describes studying at Swansea in his own words:
"Studying in Swansea University has been an exciting experience. Located along the coastal region of Swansea bay, enclosed by Singleton Park with its state-of-the-art research laboratories and sport facilities, made Swansea University an excellent environment to study.
However, it is not all work and no fun. Swansea University has one of the most diverse clubs and societies in which students are encourage to participate. Certainly my most memorable time in Swansea was with the bunch of people in the sub-aqua club. An annual dive trip down to Salcombe and Plymouth with the club was the best time I ever had in UK.
Swansea University has a profound reputation in engineering. The Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree courses are all accredited by the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) making it more desirable to industry. With the current severe shortage of talented engineers in Europe, there could not have been a better time to start pursuing an engineering career."
