      I haven’t really been in the world on engineering long enough to of had the greatest success with engineering just yet!:D I am learning a lot though within the engineering and maybe one day I’ll have an opinion that will change the world of engineering somehow:D However, the project I am working on at the moment, I am the head engineer so I may have a great idea soon for it:D

      I think when I was analyzing flight data and looking at incidents, it was a real achievement to actually be able to read the data and work out what had happened.

      Earlier this year I was given a project to design, build and qualify (through testing) a flight model propulsion system. I was there from the kick off meeting with the customer to final delivery. There were a myriad of problems (as there always are with custom designs and new hardware) but I managed to solve them all. I was incredibly proud of the project when I finished and I’ll be even more proud when I see it launch into space next year!
