Women in Engineering – Erin Riley

“I completed my first three-month placement last year, and have now returned for a 15-month undergraduate placement. My project during the three months was to test the correlation of NVH Finite Element Analysis models. This involved looking at the current practices for developing and running theoretical simulations, and recreating those simulations in real life to compare the data. This project allowed me to gain an understanding into FEA and its applications, and find methods of improving it.

Jaguar Land Rover is a modern company with a friendly culture. I have a fantastic team leader who has guided me throughout my time here. She helped me improve my skills and gain as much experience as possible.

The undergraduate community at Jaguar Land Rover is incredibly supportive as well. We do weekly lunches and after-work meets, giving us the chance to share our experiences of working in different departments.”
