The Big Picture

Isabelle did a Year in Industry with the STFC (Science and Technology Facilities Council) where she got to work on a particle accelerator, utilising not only her particle physics knowledge but also relativity and electromagnetism.

“Every day I’m learning something new.”

In Isabelle’s Own Words…

… And The Next Step

Isabelle graduated from the University of Sheffield in July 2016. She now works as a Systems Engineer for MBDA where she uses her lab and computer simulation skills in the defence industry.

“Before starting my placement I was concerned that I wasn’t going to be good enough – I felt like have they really picked me, like why have they really picked me, this can’t be right, but you just have to go in with confidence.”
