EFFECT Photonics, who specialise in optical electronics, have supported three engineering students with work experience placements as part of National Apprenticeship Week. The three engineering students Alex Avery, Ethan Graham and Jamie Dewhirst participated in a mock interview session, based at South Devon College.
They impressed Paul Harrison, Operations Manager, and Jo Rowlands-Stewart, Human Resources Manager, so much with their enthusiasm and subject knowledge gained from their Level 2 studies that they were offered the opportunity to work with local engineers at EFFECT Photonics.
Founded in 2010, EFFECT Photonics delivers highly integrated optical communications products based on its Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) optical System-on-Chip technology. EFFECT Photonics develops and delivers highly integrated optical products based on InP (Indium Phosphide) which is the material of choice for creating efficient laser light sources, waveguides, modulators, and photodiodes used in optical communication systems throughout the world.
We are proud of the impact our students are having on the working world and look forward to hearing further positive news from our other engineering students who are also in work placements with local businesses.
