Personal Statement

I joined Durham University in 2011, as a Modern Apprentice within the Mechanical Workshop of the Department of Physics.

I became a fully qualified Technician in 2015, after a period of training and day release study. I am currently in my final year of studying a Mechanical Engineering BEng (Hons) degree, day release.

In 2019, I changed roles within the Department, moving from Mechanical Engineering Services, to the Level 2 Teaching Laboratories as a Teaching and Research Laboratory Technician.
