The real faces of JLR – Haamid Adam


My name is Haamid and I study Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham.

During my time at Jaguar Land Rover, I was working within manufacturing, specifically within the Launch Quality department at the Solihull plant.

The biggest take-away from the placement for me was certainly the refinement of my soft skills, like leadership and project management. Having returned to university for my third year, I’m able to bring over these skills directly to my Design Project in a leadership capacity, which essentially involves creating a processing plant of some sort with a team of 5 engineers, from the ground up- daunting, I know!

I was also very fortunate to be able to witness the launch phase for some spectacular vehicles and understand the underpinning processes that drive production and manufacturing at JLR.

Overall, my commercial awareness of the automotive sector was really strengthened, and It’s this understanding that allowed me to gain a deeper insight Into the direction of where the automotive and mobility areas may be headed in the near future.
