MDes - Master of Design

The first 2 years at Coventry vastly expanded my knowledge around Industrial Design; teaching me design methods, communication skills and about manufacturing processes. “Add+vantage” courses allowed me to develop my skills in Adobe and use these throughout my course. This final year has been spent completing a design research report. Constructing a design brief and specification from my own research has taught me to time manage to a professional level and fully plan my design approach.

Education

Delft University of Technology, NL
Industrial Design Engineering
2014 - 2015 

Erasmus and Masters Minor

This sandwich year abroad allowed me to experience and participate in the Erasmus programme. Focusing on more technological courses it broadened my knowledge of engineering in addition to the process of how design and engineering can be integrated. New International styles of design processes were introduced and learning these different methods allowed me to enhance my own development. I further learned how to work in International teams and communicate between different cultures. 

Open University
Maths for Science
2011 

OU Credits

This was an additional course taken during my A-levels. It was a process to help me with the maths side of my A-levels and taught me to manage my time as well as effectively delegating my tasks and learning processes.

Loughborough Grammar School
GCSE’s - A levels
2006 - 2012 

A - Levels

This school had a huge influence on my ability to learn and develop, equipping me with the skills to teach myself and understand my dyslexia. A lot of extra-curricular activities were available, including completion of my Silver D of E, promotion to NCO in the school CCF and the opportunities to compete in the Public School Fencing Championships and the GB under 17 Foil Team.

Work Experience

Charnwood Medical Centre
Data Input Clerk
2009 - 2013

A summer job that I applied for each year. I learned to use different NHS IT systems, the importance of data protection, confidentiality and inputting large amounts of sensitive data correctly. I worked in an office environment with a team of people, managing my own tasks and time sheet.
  1. Computer Building
    I regularly custom design and build desktop computers. I will talk to a client to understand their individual needs and with them ensure a product that meets their expectations. I will then go through the process of building and teaching them how to service their own computer, severely under cutting other commercial custom PC building services and providing excellent value for money.
  2. Fencing
    I represented Great Britain at U17 in the European Cadet Circuit. Regularly competing around the country in national competitions, I was awarded the Peter Bailey Prize for Excellence in Sport by Loughborough Grammar School (2012).
  3. Drums
    I have played percussion since the age of 7 but now focus on the drum kit. Maintaining and servicing my own equipment supports my practical skills.
