Life at Plessey

Graduate to Senior Product Development Engineer:

Working at Plessey I’ve had to opportunity to try lots of different things, from CAD modelling to hardware and software development. Coming out of University I was unsure of what I want to do and having the flexibility to work in multiple areas has allowed me to identify what I really enjoy. Recently I’ve been getting more involved in customer facing projects. This has allowed me to develop different skills which you don’t learn at University and also travel around the world for face to face meetings.

James, MEng Electrical & Electronic Engineering Student from University of Bristol:

During my internship, I worked as part of the product development team focusing on designing and implementing a Bluetooth control system for one of their frontline products, as well as an app to act as the user interface. I then developed a universal Bluetooth datalogger for some of the testing instrumentation used in the facility, where I learnt PCB design and optimisation. During my time at Plessey I have developed my technical skillset, specifically in PCB design and circuit design software alongside Java and BASIC coding languages. I feel that this has provided me with invaluable experience and has improved my technical skillset, improving my employability.
