Another engineer displaying his work was Ethan Diaper, who is studying for the Higher National Certificate in Engineering alongside working for Rochem Fyrewash.

The company, which produces and distributes engine cleaning technology, has adopted Ethan’s project design as a result of his hard work.

Production technician Ethan redesigned the nozzle testing system, slashing the time needed to test each product by around two thirds.
