Enrico Da Lio – Research and Development Composites Engineer, Lamiflex
"Having worked for six years in a chemical factory in Italy, I decided to come to England to study. I have long been fascinated by mechanical components and the use of alternative materials such as composites and the MEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering with Composites programme enabled me to couple my two interests.
During the summer vacations I was lucky enough to secure two work placements at NASA. I worked on X-Core, a composite material still in its early stages of study and then on the characterisation of the physical properties of moon dust, apparently not worked on since the 1970s. It was an extremely exciting experience. I went to NASA unsure of myself, but left knowing I had an incredible engineering future ahead of me. After graduating I returned to Italy to work as a Research and Development Composites Engineer for Lamiflex. I'm responsible for the development of medical components for radiology purposes. My work has included the development of a new table top for CAT scans and the development of composite components for a mammography scan device."
