A typical involves testing and writing test reports. I am also involved with designing test fixtures and sourcing vendors for test tooling and test equipment. I also maintain existing tooling and stock for the test lab to allow different engineering groups to organise testing at short notice. I have learned different materials and methods used in the medical industry as well as using different materials and chemicals for use with surface tension measurements. I get on well with co-workers and management as well as mentoring new hires and co-op students. There isn't a hard part of the job but there is a lot of repetitiveness in testing. I enjoy CAD work when looking to create new tooling and test fixtures.
