To summarise my placement, I would say that it was an invaluable experience being placed into a working engineering company like Siemens. I gained a real appreciation for all the work, calculation and rigorous testing that not only goes into products made by Siemens, but also carried out by other professional engineering companies too, and would recommend the four weeks to anybody considering a career in engineering.
