The INTERNal view

As we say goodbye to our Engineering Interns Jazim Sohail and Taylor McKenzie, they share their experiences of the last eight months here at the Catapult 

As student engineers, the one thing that really makes a difference to our course, and our chances of employment at the end of our studies, is getting a good industrial placement, and here at ORE Catapult we really landed on our feet!

We’re just coming to the end of a seven-month placement with ORE Catapult as part of the Masters in Engineering with Renewable Energy course we are both enrolled in at the University of Edinburgh.

We’ve been so lucky to be involved in some cutting-edge industry projects, way beyond the graduate-level work expected of our placement, and this has given us a real insight into the offshore renewable energy sector, with both of us keen to pursue careers in the industry in the future.

As key members of strategically important Catapult projects such as SPARTA and BLEEP, we were assigned tasks involving data analysis, reporting and problem-solving. This has significantly enhanced both our professional and personal skill sets, setting us up really well for our Fifth-year studies, and has hopefully brought benefit and fresh insights to the projects themselves.

We’ve had a great seven months and worked on some really interesting projects with some of the leading engineers in their fields. Thanks to all at the Catapult for mentoring and supporting us through this vital period in our studies.
