Why I applied...

The WMG Graduate Development Programme offered me the opportunity to work on world class research projects with industry automotive partners. It allowed me to take knowledge and skills obtained whilst completing my physics degree and apply it in real world dynamic projects. The large number of placements during the scheme allow you to work proactively to develop strong team work and presentation skills. Working for Warwick University with all the boundless opportunities it brings, but with a deep industrial application, was an opportunity that I could not miss.

My highlights...

The first six months of the programme have flown by. Every day I am doing something new and exciting, whilst always challenging myself. I worked in the electric machines group for three months and was given excellent support and encouragement to develop my simulation skills and implement them to solve problems for industrial partners. I am currently working on an intriguing field in electrochemistry on new materials for electric vehicles and everyday have the opportunity to access the world class lab facilities we have here at WMG. I have recently completed an internationally recognised project management qualification. This was delivered via a week of high quality teaching outside of our day-to-day projects as one of the two MSc modules I will be studying this year.

Advice to applicants...

Make the most of the vast array of opportunities available on the scheme. I have been able to successfully expand my network of professional contacts, both inside and outside of WMG and attend events organised by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers.
