Imogene Howarth

Imogen Howarth (Alumna)

I am a Design Engineer on the Product Development Graduate Scheme at Aston Martin Lagonda. My home department is Body Interior Trim so I help to develop the next generation of Aston Martin Interiors. My job involves a combination of creative problem solving, engineering and design and every day is completely different – ranging from building prototypes in the workshop to testing out supercars for myself!

I studied Engineering with Product Design (MEng) at the University of Liverpool because it seemed like the perfect combination of both technical and creative skills – my favourite subjects at school were textiles, art and science. Not only were the facilities and opportunities at Liverpool brilliant, but the city was a really lively and exciting place to spend four years and I really enjoyed my time there. 

During my studies I completed a number of industrial summer placements – this really helped me to work out what direction to take my career in. A placement at Jaguar Land Rover (inspired by a university trip to the Halewood Plant) got me interested in the automotive industry and the rest is history!
