“I am currently studying Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Industrial Project MEng Honours at Newcastle University. I started studying in October 2016 and am in my second working placement at my sponsoring company, Edwards Ltd. based in Eastbourne, Sussex. The E3 programme has enabled me to be linked to an employer at an early stage of my career and being sponsored by a world-leading employer in vacuum technology."
