Managing Director of Micrometric, Neil Main, sits on the Board of Governors at Lincoln UTC and supports students with work experience on a regular basis. Whilst completing a BTEC Extended Diploma in Engineering, Georgina Smith was given the opportunity to complete an industrial placement with Micrometric. 

Georgina said: “My placement allowed me to build a long-term relationship with Micrometric, gain an in-depth understanding of the company, and evidence the practical application of my engineering skills. “In September 2021, I started a BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Lincoln, and I am now working part-time for Micrometric alongside my degree.” 

Neil Main, Managing Director at Micrometric said: “By giving engineering students an opportunity to learn about the precision components and state-of-the-art equipment we use, they are able to increase their knowledge and abilities not just in engineering, but in design, innovation and even organisation. 

“As a company we feel proud that we’re able to support the next generation of bright and enthusiastic engineers.”
