As part of my studies for the new RQF HNC in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, I have re-invented the way my workplace builds its bestselling product through simply re-designing the way a PCB is manufactured. This has not only made the process efficiency rise dramatically but in the year 2018 I estimate that the change will save the company in the region of £20,000. However, in today’s modern society it’s not just about the money in the bank. It’s the habitat in which we live that is becoming more pertinent.
Through the re-invention of this PCB I have enabled myself to directly cut out several environmentally detrimental processes, transportation of materials being the hardest hitting. Vehicle pollution is one of the biggest killers of the environment today; through reducing this damage even by a small extent is a step in the right direction. What I am proposing isn’t ground-breaking technology but what it represents is a project that takes that first small step into making us a more sustainable as a business.
Top 3 learnings:
1. Saving our planet starts with yours truly.
2. A change no matter how small can have huge impacts.
3. Engineering is at the heart of environmental sustainability.
