Scottish Engineering Special Leaders Award – Rob Ward

Small - Rob WardJoin us on Wednesday 2nd March at 11am for an opportunity to chat to an engineer who can help you as part of this year’s Scottish Engineering Special Leaders Award.

This week’s engineer is Rob Ward, a Weapon Engineer Officer in the Royal Navy. To be a Weapon Engineer you need to very good at leading teams of highly qualified, incredibly motivated and enthusiastic experts. These Engineers have a very in-depth understanding of IT, explosives and sensor systems. But on a submarine you need to include nuclear physics in the mix too. Apart from excellent Science and Mathematic Skills you need to be really good at dealing with people often in stressful conditions and exciting situations and, perhaps, after months without contact from their family.

The biggest thing to realise is that understanding your team is just as important as knowing your equipment. On a daily basis Rob could be doing anything from fixing Missiles and Torpedoes on the submarine in the Port to being ultra quiet in the middle of the Ocean hunting down other submarines. There really isn’t a typical day and every day is exciting!

Sign up and join Rob live and ask him all your questions! – Scottish Engineering Special Leaders Award – Rob Ward.
