• Skilled in the use of Analytical programmes such as ANSYS, MATLAB
and CFD.
-Ability to validate and verify designs by hand calculations and computer
• Able to demonstrate design awareness through Design Review
-Reactive to design alterations at any stage of the process.
In addition, I feel I have strengthened my knowledge of manufacturing
processes and continued to develop my technical skills whilst working on
some complex engineering issues, maintaining a high level of accuracy
throughout all my deliverables.

During my employment some of the projects which I carried out the
engineering design duties for were as follows:

• Hydraulic Power Packs
- Inc. specifying, sourcing and incorporating CAT desiel Engines, Air
Recievers, Fuel Tanks, Spark Arresting kits and Exhausting Systems into a

Key Skills and Achievements
I am a very confident person accomplished in the use of most MS packages,
particularly MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint as a result of the many
presentations I have been required to perform. I am also an Associate
member of the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (I.MECH.E), which is
something I am continuing to progress through. I also have a full, clean
driving license, and drive my own motor vehicle.

I am a keen sports enthusiast, football in particular. I am currently sitting the
second of three coaching certificates required a local under 14s football side,
alongside playing amateur football myself. I am also due to gain a mandatory
First Aid certificate in conjunction with this on 19th June 2009. I have also
participated in summer community coaching programmes linked to St.
