During his degree, Adam joined Moog as an intern for his placement year. He was so impressed by the company that he applied for a graduate role, allowing him to further his career.

Adam started his Moog journey at the Tewkesbury facility while studying for a Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering degree at the University of Leeds. His time as a Test Equipment Intern gave him valuable experience – while his placement started in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, he was able to gain in-person experience supporting our defence manufacturing teams.

After graduating with a first-class degree, he applied for one of our graduate positions. “The most important factor in me coming back was the company culture,” Adam said. “People enjoy working here and take time to teach you thinks. It really feels like a place where you can improve yourself and progress.”

Just nine months into the graduate programme, Adam was promoted to a Sustainment Engineer – a vital part of the Test Equipment team. “It’s my role to keep test equipment working on site, so this means my day can change very quickly depending on what the production teams need,” Adam said. “This keeps the work I’m doing exciting and challenging, and I’m always working with new people.”

Already, Adam’s been implementing important change throughout his department, developing an I4.0 monitoring system for the hydraulic pump packs. “This has allowed me to apply a lot of knowledge from my degree to something that’s beneficial to Moog on a long-term basis, so I’m quite proud of that,” Adam continued.

Being at Moog means that Adam has plenty of opportunities to keep learning and progressing. “There are many opportunities to develop your skills at Moog, and I hope to continue making the most of them,” Adam said.

“I really enjoy working on exciting projects with like-minded engineers, and throughout the business, you feel supported and enabled by the team around you. For me, that makes Moog a great place to work,” Adam concluded.
