A day in the life of a KTP Associate Embedded Systems Engineer in the United Kingdom
International graduate on the KTP scheme - a great way to start your career in the UK
What I do
Embedded systems research and development
Skills I use and how I developed them
Technical aspect of my job deals with micro-controllers which I don’t have a lot of experience in. My experience is with FPGAs (which are similar devices); however, the expertise gained during my Master’s degree in York taught me how to learn new skills and this is turning out to be a big bonus.
PhD research involves a lot of resource/time management skills along with R&D skills. Going through the whole PhD process in York helped me sharpen those skills which are proving key in my current job.
What I like most
Freedom to innovate
Courses taken since graduation
QCF Level 5 Certificate in Management and Leadership
Lean Six Sigma Black Belt
IOSH Managing Safely Certificate
My advice to students considering work
York Career office provides a lot of support in refining CVs and more importantly covering letters. They will even help you tailor both for every single job application you make and please make the most out of it.
My advice about working in my industry
KTP (Knowledge Transfer Partnership) scheme is a good place to start your career. It’s mid-way between an academic career and industrial one and hence you can get a taste of both. As a result, in future you can take either career paths without issues.
