Experienced engineer Steven Bourne has gone all the way from apprentice to MSc, picking up awards and accolades along the way.
He works for Astrium, part of the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS) which provides civil and military space systems and services.
Astrium sponsored him to attend Birmingham City University one day a week for his accredited MSc Mechanical Engineering where, as well as successfully completing the course, he took home the PTC Postgraduate Prize for Outstanding Achievement on a Postgraduate Programme.
“My course has provided me with some excellent engineering skills which have given me the confidence and ability to do this job. I believe my academic success has also given my employer the confidence to trust me with the responsibilities associated with my current job role.”
”After returning to work at Astrium full-time, he moved up to the position of Structures Engineer. Steven had already received his BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering from the University in 2007.
Steven found that taking the course boosted not just his skills and knowledge but also his belief in his abilities, especially in presenting to large groups. He said he would recommend the course to anyone looking to build their career in the engineering field and achieve Chartered Engineer status.
For now, Steven has finished studying although he has considered enrolling for a doctorate at some point in the future.
