Thomas Larsen enjoys all things mechanical and is excited he's going to learn a whole lot more than he already knows when he sees what goes on at the state-of-the-art Ferrari and Maserati servicing area of Continental Car Services in Auckland. He quickly learns that the work areas are kept meticulous and that's what expected. Thomas is straight into it when he's shown what's involved in identifying a mechanical problem with a car that has come in indicating an issue via the onboard computer. The technology is something else when it comes to cars worth several hundred thousand dollars as Thomas soon discovers. Along with servicing, Thomas is also made aware that the vehicles are groomed to perfection before being handed back to the owner. But his real highlight comes as he nears the end of his experience...there's no denying the buzz an expensive, fast car can give!

An automotive engineer can move up through the ranks and become a workshop supervisor. Scott meets Continental Car Services workshop supervisor Devon Scott to learn about what his day might entail. "My primary role is to supervise the technicians and quality control," Devon explains. This means keeping the team busy, prioritising jobs and then allocating jobs to the most suitable technician. Being a fully qualified technician is a must for the role to ensure the job is being done correctly and to step in and offer assistance if necessary. Communication skills are also a top priority for Devon as he needs to maintain good working relationships with the team. They need to understand the importance of high quality work as with upmarket brands, customer expectations are also high. So when a job has been completed and the technician has completed the road test, Devon also will do a final quality control road test and check the work done before the car is handed back to the owner. Scott soon realises the road tests are like the icing on this job's cake! Find out more about this, and a huge variety of other careers, at http://www.justthejob.co.nz

CLEMSON — A Clemson University student will make national history Thursday, December 20, as the first woman in the country to earn a Ph.D. in automotive engineering. Ala Qattawi is among nearly 200 students in Clemson's automotive engineering program who are pursuing graduate degrees in the male-dominated field. Qattawi's work involves concept cars and establishing a scientific approach for the design of structural origami in folded sheet metal. She said the technology will improve automobile efficiency and functionality. "The full achievement of products with respect to origami applications has different manufacturing procedures and different design guidelines and requirements," said Qattawi, who is a research assistant at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research. "It's an emerging science. The anticipation of this process can make lighter-weight products and more complicated shapes with fewer operations in manufacturing." Qattawi said time saved in the design and manufacture of vehicles means savings for consumers. Qattawi studied industrial engineering at the Jordan University of Science and Technology and graduated at the top of her class. She said she always enjoyed math and science and determined early on that she would pursue a career in automotive engineering. "I like to solve problems and I like physics and chemistry a lot," Qattawi said. "I like to learn how things work and how to actually manufacture something or design it from scratch." Qattawi acknowledges there are few female role models in her field. She hopes her accomplishments will inspire more women to pursue careers in engineering. "Engineering exists everywhere. We use all the applications of it. We use all the tools and products that are actually designed and manufactured by engineers," Qattawi said. "Good role models will encourage women to recognize their abilities." "Ms. Qattawi's accomplishment is exemplary of the tradition CU-ICAR has in being first to deliver exceptional talent at the Ph.D. level to the automotive industry," said Imtiaz Haque, executive director of the Carroll A. Campbell Graduate Engineering Center and chairman of the automotive engineering department. "It also shows our passion and commitment to professionally developing women with outstanding capabilities for today's and tomorrow's talent pool," he said. "Clemson University is extremely proud of Ms. Qattawi and her accomplishment." "This is a momentous time for our automotive engineering program and an inspiring occasion for our current and future female students," said professor Laine Mears, the automotive engineering graduate program coordinator. Qattawi gained more at Clemson than even she expected. She met her husband, Mahmoud Abdlehamid, at the university. He also is working on his Ph.D. in automotive engineering. The couple recently welcomed home a new addition to the family: their first child. Baby Kareem was born Nov. 23. Qattawi will receive her Ph.D. at Thursday's graduation ceremonies at Littlejohn Coliseum.
