Event details

In these sessions, our alumni will share their career journey, which began at the York Plasma Institute (YPI). They'll discuss what it is like working where they do, talk about the skills their organisations are looking for in graduates, and the typical application process.

For this session, we're joined by Tom Anderson, who is currently a Senior Engineering Consultant with MathWorks, Cambridge, your favourite purveyor of modelling and simulation tools according to Tom.
