I was a Test Engineer for Celestica, working with a number of companies including Hewett Packard, Dell, Sun Microsystems, BAE and ITT corporation. I worked with technicians to repair test machines and debug failing circuit boards. This experience helps me to explain how international companies work and how electronics are manufactured and tested, which I can share with students.Andrew Jordan Curriculum Team Leader in Engineering
