GE Aviation - Internship
Konrad Ciechanowski was snapped up by GE Aviation before completing his engineering masters.
Konrad, now working as a Quality Engineer in the Quality Engineering department, is responsible for technical investigations where he identifies issues and makes recommendations to improve the quality systems.
"I was well prepared for this role as did an internship with GE as part of my BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering degree.
The MSc Mechanical Engineering course taught me the theory behind quality and health and safety systems management
The Strategic Leadership and Management for Engineers module was particularly valuable.
"It introduced me to leadership theories and practice, particularly change and strategy management, which I use on a daily basis.
Module content was key. I also use the knowledge of advanced materials and manufacture every day. Both BEng and MSc courses gave me a solid engineering technical knowledge, which is a must-have in the aviation business."
