Don’t commit to too much! - Learning from two weeks' industry experience

Sam Casadei, Cohort 2019

Recently, I was fortunate enough to complete two weeks work experience at Tribosonics, a Sheffield-based company that uses high-tech embedded sensing technology to provide powerful and targeted data to its clients. Tribosonics is using its technology to drive transformation in the transport, power generation, and manufacturing sectors.

My experience was packed full of new learning opportunities, both with practical data analysis, as well as cultivating new spreadsheets to help keep inventory of stocks. Bridging the gap between academia and industry is a crucial opportunity, and being able to gain feedback directly from industry is the fastest way to learn which skills hold the highest priority.
