Andrew Edgar


I am currently a Masters student at the University of Strathclyde working towards a degree in Sports Engineering, however I have taken a year out in industry. Being an enthusiastic and self-motivated person, I always bring fresh, innovative ideas to whatever project I am working on, and I love to be challenged. My main fascination lies within design, technology and development in the sports industry. I study in a very specialist area which includes many aspects of design and manufacture, as well as human anatomy and bio-mechanics and this provides the perfect compromise for me. During my year in industry, I have completed internships with Nestlé UK, Adidas and PUMA. Being in an extremely fast-paced environment has taught me how to work efficiently and effectively in high pressure situations. By pro-actively seeking opportunities across a number of different product and innovation teams, I have experienced working with some of the industry's most advanced materials and processes, and now have a broad range of project experience across several disciplines. I recently completed a personal portfolio project with the PUMA Sportstyle design team on the design and development of a new running shoe. Aside from work, I also love to explore. Having travelled to Asia, the USA and extensively around Europe over the past years I have been able to adapt to different cultures and environments. I find travelling to be a thrilling experience and I love to work in new and exciting places, and I hope that in the future I can maintain this. I’m looking to transform my passion for sports and product development into a career following my graduation. My aim is to work for an innovative company, who will challenge me to use my skills and potential to explore and surpass the boundaries of sports engineering. I am currently seeking a full time position from June 2018.
