I think how quickly and easy it was to get the internship. I was very busy and stressed with exams, and all I had to do was send over 3 documents and Lucie just took it from there! And another best feature is the amount of contact and support you have here, The weekly whatsapp messages just checking in to see how I was doing, and that kind of support you give the interns. I know it’s in your company values and you really follow them!
You guys kept reaching out to check up on me, making sure I was okay and happy at work. The socials were very good. You guys get an A+ from me!
By getting involved with Bridging Gaps I hope mainly to give myself a company or area of study to really focus on and gain a deeper understanding of the inner workings. University work has left me slightly wanting in terms of applying my knowledge to meaningful scenarios with real consequence, it feels as though I am just learning theories and how to pass exams.
Experience in the engineering industry and hopefully a good knowledge of what career path to take once I've completed my degree. I hope to apply my engineering knowledge into real world projects and hone in on my skills as an engineer
I have a background in Mechanical Engineering and a MEng in HVAC, electrical facilities in building and energy efficiency. I also concluded an international course about renewable energy and hydrogen technology in Germany as Erasmus student. Currently I am working on my final dissertation for my MSc Environmental Sustainability at Edinburgh Napier University. I am looking for an opportunity to gain experience in the engineering and sustainability field. I am open to work in any position that allows me to acquire more work experience related to my studies, and being able to put that knowledge into practice.
l hope to gain experience in planning projects from start to finish, working alongside product managers in creating new products, data analysis and report writing. I am excited about this opportunity as it will aid in cultivating my learning and experience which lead to more opportunities in the future. l also hope to improve and gain high levels of communication, interpersonal, time management and teamwork skills.
