Eleanor Roake, an IOM3 student member, has received an Innovation Award whilst on industrial placement at TE Connectivity in Swindon.

Eleanor is currently working as an analytical intern in the Aerospace, Defence and Marine Division of the company.

The award recognises the contribution that Eleanor made to solving the problem of how to screen specific areas of aluminium components during the anodising process.

Eleanor will be returning to QMUL to complete her degree in Materials Science and Engineering next academic year.

She says: "Being on placement has been a thoroughly rewarding experience that I would highly recommend to all undergraduate students. It provides the opportunity to get hands-on experience working on commercially relevant projects.

"Spending time in industry has helped me develop many skills that I can take back to University when I return to complete my degree."
