summer placements of impact
impact solutions are pleased to welcome another two students from Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST), as our summer placements of impact is well under way.
Alison Lang (21) started her summer placement of impact at the beginning of July. She currently studies BSc (Hons) Chemical Technology at MCAST which will then allow for a career in Analytical Chemistry and Research & Development. Alison will be returning to MCAST for her second year after the internship at impact, Scotland.
Enjoying the practical side of working in a laboratory, Alison is now finding her feet at impact where she is learning a range of thermal and mechanical testing of polymers materials. She will also be involved in a couple of innovation and research & development projects.
As Alison has only just finished studying her first year of Chemical Technology, she is still deciding what she would like to specialise in. Having already gained some experience in the pharmaceutical industry during her previous placement, Alison would now like to get experience working in a variety of industries to keep her future options open. Hopefully, a specialised company such as impact solutions can expose Alison to as much of our industry as we can. She already enjoys the hands on approach of laboratory testing which is more exciting following the theory and knowledge she has already learned. Alison will then go on to complete a third internship at another industry specific company before choosing which route she would like to specialise in.
Alison’s fellow student, Aidan, will be joining impact of summer placements in August. They are both looking forward to working together abroad, while also living the tourist life and getting to explore places in Scotland.
impact solutions welcome you to our team and hope you enjoy your placement with us!
