Interview Preparation with Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE)
Wed 16 November 2016, 14:00 – 15:30 GMT
The Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) plays a crucial role in national defense where we have been at the forefront of the UK Continuous At Sea nuclear deterrence programme for more than 60 years. AWE also supports Nuclear Threat Reduction where we contribute to the detection and prevention of various threats to the UK.
AWE employ a wide range of scientists including physicists; chemists; and material scientists; also engineers and mathematicians.
Our physicists cover many areas including fluid and hydrodyanmics, plasma physics as well as radiation and nuclear physics that is found inside stars. Our mathematicians look at numerical methods, data analysis and statistical methods and our engineering includes mechanical, electrical, electronic as well as system engineering.
Dr Neil Gaspar has PhD in theoretical physics, lectured in materials engineering and more recently spent time modelling the interesting phenomena of plutonium metallurgy. At the moment his role is the Academic Manager for Nuclear Threat Reduction. This is probably less interesting than it sounds, but it does mean that he as interviewed quite a few students.
In this workshop Neil will discuss key elements for a successful interview. Then you will look at how to relate your knowledge and experience to the sort of detail that is asked for in a job description. By looking at hypothetical cases and discussion you will consider the key points in your CV and how to relate those in an interview situation.
Level of study: open to UG, PGR, PGT
