Since graduating from the University of Edinburgh, Caroline has been working at Jaguar Land Rover, first as a graduate engineer, and now as a project engineer for Cockpit Systems in Body Engineering. Her two years in the JLR graduate scheme involved everything from physically fitting parts to cars on the assembly line, to helping put together high level strategy documents. Caroline has had the opportunity to spend time with the Globalisation team, helping with the project management of some of JLR’s international ventures, and Design Feasibility team, interfacing between Design and Engineering to align Systems and Contents for their upcoming vehicles.
Currently, Caroline is part of the product integration team for cockpit systems, which works in the strategy phase of upcoming programmes. This involves defining the cockpit content of the vehicle, conducting initial feasibility studies, creation of concepts and estimate costings. It also consists of looking at the overall architecture of the cockpits, laying out future strategies and reducing complexity of the parts.
