The real faces of JLR – Michael Schneider

Hi everyone,

I’m the Jaguar Land Rover Campus Ambassador for Durham University. Currently, I am studying for the final year of my Aeronautical Engineering degree.

Over the summer I worked at JLR as part of the undergraduate scheme, where I was placed in the frontal crash team within body engineering – computer aided engineering. This area involves the simulation and analysis of crash load cases, in order to ensure our vehicles are meeting and exceeding crash legislation. The placement provided me with numerous personal development opportunities through mentorship, training and insight workshops.

As part of the placement, I completed projects owned by myself and as part of the team. These projects allowed me to develop appropriate technical skills, whilst mentorship and workshops allowed me to explore opportunities within the company and provided me with a greater understanding of the automotive and technology industry. The interpersonal and communication skills developed over the summer have strongly improved my confidence and have already been applicable to my last year of university in all aspects.

The graduate scheme would offer me the perfect opportunity to take the next steps in my engineering career and I would be very excited to return to the company next year!

Michael

The real faces of JLR – Georgia Dowell

Jaguar Land Rover helped me develop a range of skills including my professional presentation ability, individual project management skills and negotiation skills.

Through out the year I was challenged with a range of projects which developed my experience and knowledge in the automotive industry. Not only this, but my confidence rocketed during my year at JLR as I was pushed out of my comfort zone and had to solve a number of problems.

I would return to JLR due to its opportunities for graduates on the graduate scheme including the chance to try out different departments. It’s also an innovative and forward thinking company, that would be exciting to be a part of in the coming years.

The real faces of JLR – Haamid Adam

Hello!

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.

The real faces of JLR – Jose Cordova

Jaguar Land Rover was an ideal place to have my first engineering work experience. On the technical side, I applied the theory I was thought at University to real problems, this showed me a perspective of engineering that you rarely experience in uni and helped me develop my engineering and problem-solving skills.

On the non-technical side, working on different teams and sites helped me develop my communication, team working, and presentation skills.

Right now the automotive industry is going through numerous changes and JLR is leading in so many of them. It is an exciting time to work here, and I believe a great future awaits. I would like to work in the challenging but friendly environment that JLR fosters and help shape the company and the industry.

The real faces of JLR – Egheosa Ogbomo

My name is Egheosa Ogbomo and I am currently studying Mechanical Engineering at Warwick university.

I worked in the Powertrain Research department as part of the project management team during my summer at Jaguar. It was super exciting because I got to see how exactly JLR work to develop the niche and novel technology that makes their cars stand out from the competition!

Working with so many different stakeholders dramatically improved my teamwork skills and the nature of the project I worked on meant I took on a lot of technical knowledge too! Everyone I worked with was incredibly friendly and very supportive so I’d love to return to work with them again!
