Last month, Luke Jackson and Angus McIntyre from Blueprint Lab’s R&D team attended the UNSW Mechatronics Society Industry Night presenting to undergraduate engineering students. As current UNSW students themselves, Luke and Angus gave insight into their experience working at Blueprint Lab whilst simultaneously completing their degrees.
UNSW requires engineering undergraduates to fulfil 60 days of Industrial Training, working in an engineering role. Luke and Angus’ presentation elaborated on their own Industrial Training at Blueprint Lab and their subsequent recruitment onto our team.
Luke discussed his proactive approach to his engineering career and how Blueprint Lab has supported his curiosity and developed his skill;
“For as long as I can remember, I have been interested in the practical hands-on side of engineering, taking designs and figuring out how they can be manufactured easily and functionally. After working on these skills at UNSW, my role as R&D Technician at Blueprint Lab has allowed me to synthesise them with a fast-growing Sydney robotics company furthering my abilities in both mechatronic engineering as well as prototype manufacturing.”Luke Jackson
At Blueprint Lab, we understand that it can be difficult to determine future career pathways while still a student. This is why we are committed to supporting university societies and groups, inviting students to work with us and experience the versatility of industry environments. We also host seasonal summer and winter internships to help foster young talent and often use our internship programs as a launch pad for graduate careers.
Blueprint Lab sponsors the UOW Women in STEM Society, the Sydney Uni Mechatronics Society and the USYD Rocketry Team. We also maintain relationships with many other societies for events such as the UNSW Mechatronics Society Industry Night. If you’re a university group seeking industry affiliation, please email [email protected] with details.
