Get ready for I’m an Engineer!

I’m an Engineer starts on Monday, two weeks stuffed with creative questioning, exciting live chats and tenser-than-the-X-Factor eviction days!

Let’s meet the engineers competing for votes in the Production Zone and the schools who’ll be challenging them…

The Engineers

Mark Dougherty | Heinz

I help to get Beans in cans and Ketchup in bottles.

Chris Francis | Spectrum Technologies PLC

I make machines that use lasers to mark wire which is used inside aeroplanes.

Lydia James | Alcoa Howmet Exeter Castings

I’m an apprentice manufacturing engineer at an investment casting factory, I program robots to make component parts destined for jet engines and industrial gas turbine engines.

Holly Miller | Jaguar Land Rover

I write the processes that tell people, on the production line, how to put parts onto the different engines before they are ready to go into cars.

Michael Sulu | UCL

I grow lots of cells and then make each individual cell into a factory to make things like drugs or fuels.
