Imogen Howarth (Alumna)
After graduating from the University of Liverpool, Imogen became a Design Engineer on the Product Development Graduate Scheme at Aston Martin Lagonda. Working in the department Body Interior Trim, Imogen helped to develop the next generation of Aston Martin Interiors. This job involved a combination of creative problem solving, engineering and design – ranging from building prototypes in the workshop to testing out supercars.
Imogen studied Engineering with Product Design (MEng) at the University of Liverpool because it was the perfect combination of both technical and creative skills – her favourite subjects at school were textiles, art and science.
Imogen said '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!'
Imogen's career has continued to develop and her next job was at Dyson as Advanced Design Engineer - Automotive, before joining Singer Vehicle Design, where she is now Director of Special Projects & Specifications.
