John Anthony - Postgraduate Certificate in Marine Technology


Being an aerospace engineer when I enrolled, the MTEC course enabled me to explore a completely new discipline and improve my career progression opportunities by adding another string to my bow.  I gained valuable and surprisingly transferrable engineering skills and knowledge - for example, did you know that the thermodynamic cycle in a fusion power plant is similar to that on board a nuclear aircraft carrier?


In addition, the professional networking opportunities were excellent, the intensive week-long schools at the universities were always enjoyable to attend, and the course has been very well administered by Newcastle University.


I would like to sincerely thank my former employer, Rolls-Royce plc, for the funding and support it gave me throughout the course.


Currently employed at UK Atomic Energy Authority as a Systems Integration Engineer at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy
