Graduate Engineer Program

Chris joined PWR in May 2021 as he was approaching the end of a dual Bachelor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering/Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Queensland. He has a keen interest in aerospace engineering as well as a passion for automotive engineering, having worked on the 2 year restoration of a 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 with his father. PWR is the perfect place to develop his career with exposure to his engineering fields of interest. In January 2022 Chris took up a place on the PWR Graduate Engineer Program.

“The PWR Graduate Engineer Program gives me great exposure to a wide variety of manufacturing and technical developments. For example, the application of computational fluid dynamics studied at university has been great to see in action at PWR. This provided that essential link between theory and its practical counterpart. This year I have been focussing on the practical side, including spending time in Micro Matrix developing Formula 1 components and in my second year I will get exposure to the Wind Tunnel, simulation, design and then aerospace. The program really gives me a bit of everything, helping me towards my goal of working in an aerospace design area, such as engine cooling.”
