Farewell To Summer Placement Student 2021

Farewell To Summer Placement Student 2021 - News from CCP Gransden

From June-September this year (2021) Chris Smith joined us at CCP Gransden on a summer placement in industry. Chris is studying Materials Science and Engineering BEng (Hons) at Sheffield University.


Completing a summer in industry at CCP Gransden provided Chris with the soft skills needed to be successful in the workplace, as well as some of the more technical skills required by specialist advanced composites engineers. His enthusiasm and commitment were very refreshing over this busy and exciting period, with several new recruitments underway preparing CCP Gransden for ever-bigger projects. Chris’s contribution to the team at CCP Gransden was appreciated. All in all, it was a very successful placement and beneficial to both the company and Chris.


Speaking about his placement Chris stated;

“Working at CCP Gransden has been an invaluable experience. I have learnt a huge amount in design, manufacturing, R&D and project management. I am extremely grateful to the entire team who involved me in so many projects and trusted me to do a good job. I really enjoyed the hands-on approach that CCP Gransden advocated, as this gave me a truly immersive experience allowing me to learn real-world engineering. I especially took great pride in being involved in a project designated for a noteworthy prime where I was able to be independent, contributing to the design phase, material procurement, laying-up and assembly processes. I’d like to give a massive thanks to everyone at CCP Gransden for making me feel incredibly welcomed and a valued member of the team.”


Chris, from all the team at CCP Gransden we wish you the best for the future.
