Graduate Engineer, AWE
Alex is a graduate engineer at the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE). He graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2019 with an integrated master’s degree in chemical engineering. Whilst taking a module in nuclear engineering he came across nuclear fuel cycles and has subsequently developed an interest in the technologies being developed to support a closed fuel cycle. Now coming to the end of the AWE graduate programme, Alex has built experience by rotating round multiple different departments within the company. This was how he learnt about the concept of a circular economy working with the environment department.
