Life as a Process Engineer
After this week I’ve done four weeks at my “home department” and I have the great honor of working with the process engineers that are working with the manufacturing processes at our suppliers. The engineers are responsible for different fields such as casting, forging, welding and unconventional methods. These weeks I’ve been given an assignment to perform which is mainly executed in the material laboratory, which is very good since I get to know that department too as well as I’m getting to learn about the materials used here at GKN. This also means that I’m spending a lot of time together with Mikael that is the graduate engineer at the Materials laboratory. Parallel to this assignment I get to accompany the process engineers to different meetings regarding their work. As a process engineers you work a lot with both product development and with the Supply Chain organization. I learn a lot of new things every day and I love it, even though I have to be honest with you and admit that I am so tired every night, it is tiring to learn new things. At this point I have two weeks left at my department before new adventures lies ahead and I already looking forward to get back here after next summer!
Next time you’ll hear from me will be in four weeks and I will have moved over to another department due to our rotation within the company.
