My name is Tom Pritchard. I am the winner of the Young Engineers of Britain’s Innovation Award, a runner up in a national Sustainability Competition and a Tibbenham award from the Cast Metals Federation. I pride myself in my ability to satisfy briefs and carry designs from initial development through to manufacture. I am currently studying a BSc in Product Design at Loughborough University and looking for a year's placement starting this year (09).
