Robert Bion & Co recently offered a work experience placement to a Manufacturing Engineering student from BCoT. Here is what Connor has to say about his time working with Bion:
“I am currently at BCoT studying a BTEC lvl 3 extended diploma in manufacturing engineering. It is a two year course and I am currently in my second year, finishing the course early next year. During my time at Bion it was beneficial to me as it was my first experience of an engineering workshop environment. The team at Bion from the managers through to the guys in the workshop fully helped and supported me during this time. Being able to witness product orders from design through to final production was very rewarding and it was surprising at just how fast the process was completed.
Having the opportunity to operate high cost and high tech equipment was a real responibility, one that I hadn’t experienced before. Whilst at Bion I enjoyed working as part of a team, learning how to set up the machinery, assisting with the weekly maintanance checks and having to work to specific tolerances throughout the production processes. This really helped to reinforce the theory learnt at college.
Thanks once again for the opportunity.”
