I undertook computational tasks with the focus on model, simulation and analysis.
My coding skills have become drastically better, alongside my critical thinking, analytical skills and problem solving skills.
For a placement student I was given a much higher level of responsibility than expected, which allowed me to improve my skills and abilities at a much quicker and more efficient rate.
I had constant support from all my team, line-managers, and senior figures. If I had to ask for help with a specific task I never failed to get advice off anyone I sought it off.
The culture is very inclusive, especially among early careers, with lots of socials and initiatives to bring everyone together.
This placement has been one of the most rewarding periods of my life, I have been immersed into a company at the forefront of engineering and social policies and felt like the work I am doing truly has an impact on the wider world.
Make sure to find a role within the company that you truly desire over the others, as there are numerous jobs and locations to choose from within the company.
