I live in South Bristol. I haven’t got any pets at the moment but I would definitely want a dog some day. I’m a huge Family Guy fan and I’ve probably watched every episode. I’m originally from South Nigeria and absolutely love travelling.
I test and fix electronics that are used in submarines.
I’m currently an Electronic Engineer for my company’s marine department. I usually test electronic units before they’re sent off to be fitted in submarines. Sometimes, I also find out what’s wrong with units and fix them if I can. My work is quite hands on which is what I love about it. I tend to deal more with hardware but I’ve also done a bit of work on software as well.
Earlier this year, I got to actually see a submarine face to face and it was amazing. They are really huge, much bigger than I expected them to be based on what I had seen in pictures. What blew my mind even more was the fact that the one I saw was actually one of the smaller submarines.
My Typical Day: I normally get in between 7am and 7:30am, grab a cup of tea, check my emails, do some testing in the lab, write some documents
On a typical day, I get in between 7am and 7:30am to make sure I get a space to park then grab a cup of tea and a bottle of water once I get to my desk. After that, I usually check my emails to see if there’s anything I need to read and/or respond to. This usually takes up the first hour or so of my day. Once that’s done, I’m either down in the electronics lab doing some testing and repairing or writing some documents at my desk. I don’t have a lot of meetings but some come up every now and then.
What I'd do with the money
Inspire the next generation of engineers
I’m not exactly sure at the moment but I would attempt to arrange an event in Bristol or nearby that would explain the different types of engineers in simple terms to young students. This would be in the form of fun demonstrations by various specialists in that area.
