On 15 November, undergraduates were visited by Damien Hawley from FocusRite.
Damien introduced media technology students to the graduate positions and internships available at FocusRite. There are a number of graduates currently working at FocusRite and Damien was joined by a current undergraduate Adam, who is midway through a paid 12-month placement between his second and third year at Solent. He has been working on developing automation for test and measurement routines using Raspberry Pis and was enthusiastic about the projects he has been involved with and the skills he has gained.
Damien explained that FocusRite believes in raising the skillset of graduate engineers using on the job training and development programmes. There are positions available each year in a variety of roles from technical support through to software development. It was great to hear what our undergraduates and graduates have been up to and the positive reputation that the media technology programme has within the industry.
