Case Studies: Internship, Pall Corporation

There was a great amount of training on my placement at Pall, which helped me to understand the nature of the business I’d be going into.

The placement lasted a year. During that time I was assigned to a line leader and able to work on different projects. There was also a handover period with the previous student, which helped a lot.

I have mostly been working on pressurisation units for the Airbus A380 which has involved a range of responsibilities such as design work; producing engineering drawings; documentation; talking to suppliers and even organising product testing. The work will vary though, depending on whether you work in qualification, design, stress analysis, or cabin air filtration.

I had to do some stress calculations for a complex shaped part, which was a challenge. Stress analysis isn’t really my strong point and I found it quite difficult, but there was always help at hand and it built my confidence. There was a great variety of work and Pall give students quite a bit of responsibility. I got to work on products which are used on the latest aircraft also enjoyed CAD modelling which I was able to do during the design process.

After graduating I hope to sign up to a graduate scheme of a major aeronautical engineering company and work towards becoming a chartered engineer. I would definitely consider working at Pall again.
