BEng in Manufacturing Engineering Graduate Kenny Williamson speaks about his journey through WIT
"After graduating I started working for DePuy Ireland (a Johnson & Johnson company).
DePuy designs, manufactures and distributes orthopedic devices and supplies including hip, knee, extremity, trauma, orthobiologics and operating-room products which are manufactured in line with the highest quality standards within a regulated environment.
I work as a manufacturing Engineer in the foundry, where we produce over 5000 implants per week using an investment casting process, which makes life at DePuy a challenging place to work.
Luckily my time in WIT helped prepare me to meet challenges in this line of work.
I especially think the practical project work students undertake alongside the classwork, provides graduates from this course with a real understanding of what they will end up working within the industry."
