CASE STUDY: 2020 FUSE CDT Intern

Hi, I’m Awais Ali, I was a 4th Year Mechanical Engineering with Aeronautics student at The University of Glasgow. My academic interests included Material sciences as well as Thermofield engineering. I believe this internship opportunity at CDT FUSE allowed me to further expand upon my interest in Material engineering allowing me to gain a more profound understanding for Ultrasonic testing, a key NDT (Non Destructive Testing) type desirable in industry as well as developing my own programming skills in software such as MATLAB, C and LabVIEW. I was grateful for the opportunity to learn from the highly experienced members of staff at CDT Fuse and was ecstatic to learn and develop my engineering skillset during this internship!
