Career of outstanding Queen’s Engineering student set to rocket


Queen’s Engineering graduate, Conor Robinson, from Lisburn, will graduate today (Wednesday 6th July) from Queen’s before taking up a new role at the European Space Agency.

Conor, who is graduating with a MEng (Hons) in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at Queen’s, has gained a graduate trainee position at the European Space Research and Technology Centre in the Netherlands.

During his time at Queen’s, Conor assisted in the founding of a charity called Farset Labs and  became a voluntary director of the charity, which promotes Science, Technology, Engineering, and Artistic fields.

Conor worked for Andor Technology during his placement year and at the end of his year, the Company awarded him a MEng Scholarship.  He was also a finalist in the Queen’s SU Dragons Den competition and was the winner of the 2016 IET 'Megaw Lecture'.

Joining the many other Queen’s graduates who gain employment opportunities through the University’s links with over 3,000 local, national and international companies, Conor, said: “I have accomplished so much during my time at Queen’s and to be accepted into the European Space Agency graduate scheme is a dream come true.”

Conor will celebrate his graduation with his father and grandfather.
