"While studying the Renewable Energy MSc at CREST I applied to the Internship Programme. My application was successful and I spent three months at RES's head office in Kings Langley researching a project on performance validation of onshore wind farms. This gave me the opportunity to complete my MSc thesis while at the same time gaining invaluable experience in industry. On completing my project I secured a full time job at RES working as a business development manager for building integrated renewables."
"After several years spent developing computer games I wanted to move into an industry that had greater social value and environmental awareness but still used my technical skills. I studied the Renewable Energy MSc at CREST part time and then came to RES to do my MSc project in Operations and Maintenance for offshore wind farms. Doing the project enabled me to meet a lot of great people at RES and convinced me that I would like a permanent job here. In less than a year at RES I have gained a lot of new skills by being involved in technical analysis for a number of onshore and offshore wind farms including early work on Round 3 of UK offshore wind farms working with multi GW wind farms. I have also used my existing skills in software development to work on RES's range of in-house software tools."
