“We have had a very successful year,” said company  managing director, Geoff Hall,” and we have been lucky in recruiting some talented new graduates to continue our growth.”

Jason Robinson is joining Swindon Silicon Systems as a Graduate Product Support Engineer. He is a new graduate in electronic engineering from Southampton Solent University.

The company also has two new Graduate Design Engineers joining in the autumn: William Kelsey, currently completing his MEng in electrical and electronic engineering at Bristol University and Vlad Cretu who has gained an MSc in analogue and digital IC design.

The fabless IC firm is also taking on a group of undergraduates on placement in our product support group.

“This is an opportunity for them to gain valuable on the job training and experience,” said Hall.

Adrian Wheeldon reading Electronic Engineering with Computer Systems at the University of Southampton and Luke Morton reading Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College have both just completed the second year of their MEng courses and will be with the company for ten weeks over the summer.

There is a European element too with Guillaume Saint-Cirque a 3rd year student at the National Engineering Institute in Mechanics and Microtechnologies in France beginning  a five month placement in September.

“The company is committed to supporting the development of young engineers,” said Hall.

Swindon Silicon’s UK-based design team designs chips for the automotive, consumer, defence and medical markets.
