Two Minutes With…

Hassan Almoathin, Manufacturing Engineering Intern for Airframe Designs.

What do you most enjoy about working at Airframe Designs?

It’s great working at Airframe Designs because I get to learn from seasoned engineers, constantly expand my engineering knowledge, and tackle challenges using cutting-edge technology every day.

How do you start your working day?

I start my day early, waking up at 5 am. I then have a journey to Leigh in North Manchester which involves a 20-minute walk, a 40-minute bus ride, and another 20-minute walk to a colleague’s house, followed by an hour’s drive to Blackpool!

What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned at Airframe Designs?

At Airframe Designs, I’ve realised that as an engineer, the learning never stops. I’ve discovered various manufacturing processes across industries, understood that the biggest issues often have simple solutions, and recognised that hands-on experience is vital for growth. Above all, being methodical is key.

What is the most recent skill you’ve learned?

My most recent skills include mastering 3D scanning with Scanviewer and SIMSCAN, slicing techniques using BCN Stratos and GrabCAD, diving into CAD/CAM with AutoDesk Fusion 360, and understanding material properties and testing methods.

How do you relax out of work?

Outside of work, I unwind by reading books, mostly on engineering topics. I enjoy watching sports such as F1 and football as well as other TV shows to relax.

Who is your ‘hero’?

My Father – my father is my hero because he made a courageous journey from Iraq to the UK to secure a better future for his children. The sacrifice of his health over time exemplifies his unwavering love for his children and family and determination to provide a good life for generations of our family.
