Abbey is blazing a trail for females in engineering. She gained first class in her BEng (Hons) Electrical & Electronic Engineering (Top-up) while working as Senior Test Engineer at MBDA Missile Systems. She is now currently a Radio Frequency Engineer at Advanced Oncotherapy PLC.
"My degree course is really good, the tutors make learning very relatable to work life. I enjoy using the test equipment in the labs and access to these facilities is very good.
"Gaining IET accreditation was one of the big selling points of why MBDA wanted to send their degree students to University Centre Wigan & Leigh College."
