      My area is more towards material science than engineering although we also call it material engineering. Every paper that I publish on popular journals is an achievement.

      Hi Elsie

      To date, my biggest achievement, being a part of a team that was able to work together to build an instrument from the ground up and send it to CUH for testing. To build it, we needed to do optical and mechanical design, electrical wiring, write the code that controlled the whole system as well as write the codes needed to record the measurements and do statistical analysis. To get all these parts, made by different people, to work together is really exciting!

      For me my biggest achievement so far is finishing up my thesis and successfully defending it which resulted in my PhD degree.

      I worked for a few years on a new-build nuclear power plant. There aren’t many of these around the world in English speaking countries.
      My biggest achievement was supporting the implementation of a way of managing the design of the plant, which had over 1000 different designers working on it.
      Firstly, actually designing the system of management, but secondly, and the most difficult achievement was getting people to follow it willingly. That’s the real trick of engineering – the soft skills

      I was working as a leader in a fully automatic coating line project. With this project we were able to coat 100 parts in just 1 hour. However, before this project we were able to coat 1 part in 1 our. It was a good achievement.

      It takes a while but when you become better and better at something you’ll find that you also become less dependent on external factors.

      I.e. you can plan and organise your tasks accurately. You don’t need so much information from others to be able to do your own job, instead you can help or instruct others. You know your limits but you are also flexible and find it easier to transition between teams/projects. Etc…
