Process Quality Engineering

‘I landed my first graduate job within 1 month of graduating, working as a research and development engineer for a bio-energy company. I spent a lot of time in America. I am currently working for a French Optical Company as a ‘Process Quality Engineer’ with the potential to get involved in projects in France and/or Thailand, but most importantly continue doing what I love: exploring the world and problem-solving!’
