Student Profile(s)

Muthukrishnan Kumarasamy

The course was intense and connected the essential points between academic theories and industrial real-time applications. Every theory session had an appropriate hands-on session to support and validate the theories. All the course materials are advanced and industry-oriented. Group projects, individual projects, assignments and programming exercises kept us engaged.
I must say that the staff were very helpful and experienced. The Professors, other lecturers, supervisors and technicians helped us to achieve what we came here for.
I had the opportunity to work with the Placement and Careers Centre (PCC) as an employability representative (part-time job).
I did an industrial project with Subsea7 ONG Company and built a test rig for offshore splash zone installations. It was a wonderful experience and I learnt numerous concepts through this project. It was a combination of mechanical design, electrical connections, microprocessor programming and instrumentation. I was given the opportunity to work with specialized Orcaflex software. I built a steward platform with other requirements and testing equipment. It was very useful for my career and personal aspirations.
My final year dissertation was with Jones and Shipman Company based in Leicester. I performed a massive FEA on huge grinding machine and created a customized program for performing a multistage analysis on the machines through Abaqus. The program was written in Python and was an instant hit in the industry. My results were implemented and my paper was selected for Simulia International Conference. My dissertation received a Brunel Alumni prize for best dissertation award.
I got a job as a Design Engineer in a ground breaking power storage company and I am working in a core design team of the company developing new solutions. My Master’s degree sowed the seeds of engineering so deep that I am continuing my researches in computational methods and its applications. All design processes involve transforming conceptual models into design, detailing the design and manufacturing phases. Working through hand calculations, modeling, analysis, prototyping and detailed drawings are my day-to-day activities. Designing and devising a test rig to measure performance are also part of the work.
In summarising my time at Brunel, “To experience the best of engineering at a University named after the best engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Brunel is priceless!!
