With increasing numbers of people going to university, an industrial work placement was a fantastic way to gain invaluable sector-specific work experience but equally important was the positive impact I was able to have on my host company. The project put me in direct contact with key members of Norfolk County Council, local companies and a business support hub which combined have led to my current employment at Proeon Systems Ltd
I was lucky enough to be able to complete my dissertation as a project placement with Beattie Passive, based at Hethel Engineering Centre. Their focus on effective Passivhaus building design appealed to me and I was keen to get experience in this sector. Completing my research project as part of a placement with Beattie Passive gave me industry experience and an insight into how the business operates. Moreover, I gained a vast amount of knowledge of the Passivhaus Standard and this gave me motivation to use my degree to pursue a career in the sector of energy efficiency.
