EW BrightSparks 2018 profile: Michael Gucluer

Electronics Weekly has teamed up with RS Components to highlight the brightest and most talented young electronic engineers in the UK today.

Here, in our series on the EW BrightSparks of 2018, we highlight Michael Gucluer, an A-Level student at Princethorpe College, an independent school located in Princethorpe, near Rugby, Warwickshire.

Last year he was selected for both the Big Bang: UK Young Engineers and Scientists Competition final and the Young Engineer for Britain competition and mentorship programme. In the latter he was awarded a distinction certificate and the “Engineering Excellence” award (sponsored by the IET) for a major electronics project – a programmable logic controller.

He was also invited to join the Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument Makers (City of London Guild) as an apprentice for 4 years and awarded a Gold CREST award in my local region.

He describes himself as loving microelectronics with a particular aptitude for PCB design.

Looking ahead, to university, he has been shortlisted for the Birmingham City: Millennium Point scholarship, to cover his tuition fees for an Electronic Engineering undergraduate course in 2018.
