University: Cranfield – Graduated 2007
Degree: MSc Design of Rotating Machines
I applied to Hayward Tyler because of its long history in engineering and manufacturing, and because I was looking for a design role. I wanted to be part of a design team, and improve my knowledge about machine design, and have a scheduled programme for learning different sides of the business.
I started mainly working in research and development but have recently become more involved in design. I still work with the Research and Development Team when required.
My key responsibilities are stress analysis and rotor dynamic analysis. At the moment I am working on a project which involves developing the critical speed aspects of a motor as well as working on rotor dynamics analysis and stress analysis, mainly for the oil and gas department.
I plan on developing my knowledge more on the practical design of submersible motors and to try to learn more about the possible failure modes in these types of machines.
I’ve really enjoyed my role with Hayward Tyler as I am able to work in different areas like Research and Development, Power, and Oil and Gas, and I am always learning and developing my skills.
