‘My degree apprenticeship has been both varied and exciting. I have worked in so many areas of engineering here – including AVA (Associative Vehicle Architecture), climate control systems, the quality team, and the Advanced Product Creation Team – creating tech packages for our vehicles.
I finally spent a couple of years in the Climate Thermal Fluids team – looking at how we are getting cabin cooling & heating systems into our products – and now my degree is finalised I have signed a contract to become a Climate Thermal Fluids Systems Engineer.
I’ve enjoyed so many different aspects of the programme. I was recently involved in some test and development work and travelled to Italy to test the cabin & battery cooling performance – and this year I’m off to Sweden to assess the cabin heating performance. I work a lot in a climatic wind tunnel where we replicate different environments but it’s great to go to a country and test in real customer conditions.
The highlights of my degree apprenticeship? I have seen so many different parts of the business and experienced the massive variety of engineering projects that Jaguar Land Rover are involved in.
The challenges? I would say it can be tricky balancing studying for a degree with a full-time job – as you have a similar workload to other engineers in business. But I am so glad I did a degree apprenticeship- there are so many opportunities to learn and grow in all aspects of engineering. It’s phenomenal.’
