Kevin at Schrader

In July I attended a summer work experience for one week with Schrader Electronics, Antrim.  During my time at Schrader Electronics I learnt a great deal about both electrical and mechanical engineering and it was fascinating as I was given a full tour of their production lines and every machine was explained to me. I was also given an insight into the working processes of the company as I was allowed to attend various meetings.

A large portion of my time was spent shadowing other engineers, who were mostly graduates. During this time I built small circuits and also built a connector between two components, which has now actually been fitted on to one of their machines.

I really enjoyed my time at Schrader Electronics, and would strongly recommend a summer placement to anyone else that is unsure about what career path they still wish to take. Whilst the travel and work did add up to a long day, it was an incredibly enjoyable experience and very beneficial to my future.


Sincere thanks to everyone at Schrader Electronics,

Kevin Martin
