This month we have welcomed two more fantastic team members to JET Engineering System Solutions!
Jake Whiting has re-joined us for a second engineering internship, having supported our buoy antenna designs a few months ago. Jake is a 3rd year mechanical engineering student from the University of Birmingham. A few of his interests that he intends to pursue in his engineering career include bio prosthetics, robotics and the technology sector.
At university this year, Jake managed a project designing a Direct Air Capture Unit to recycle carbon from the ground up, and modelled a UAV two stroke engine. He worked as vice president of the UBRobotics society, which included restarting the society after inactivity due to Coronavirus. He also won a £10k grant to develop a water recycling system that he designed in a team made up of students that was pitched to a panel of judges which included the Vice Chancellor of the university.
Jake says: “I’m very grateful for being invited back to JET for a second internship and am looking forward to getting back to work with the team again. The team here is super talented and I can’t wait to get stuck in and make some really cool designs. In the coming month, I will be working on mounting and packaging up sensors for the buoys and adapting the design of the antenna casing that I made alongside Max previously.”
Scott Medlock is our new Manufacturing Engineer, bringing a range of engineering, outreach, and software skills to the role. He is already working hard on an exciting project that we are looking forward to sharing with you in the next few weeks!
Scott has previously created a successful online content creation business, developing skills he will utilise in supporting our BD and Operations teams.
A few words from Scott: “I am extremely excited to be joining the JET team and hoping to not only contribute towards the rising success of the company, but also develop and apply new skills through the range of opportunities that JET has to offer!”
