YINI South East Business Awards 2017

Congratulations to Maria Owusu-Mensah, who is working at Welland Medical as an Engineering Assistant on a year’s placement under a Year In Industry (YINI) Scheme. Maria was selected as a semi-finalist in the YINI South East Contribution to the Business Awards 2017 which took place in London last month.


Maria based her successful presentation on one of the objectives of the engineering and operations department ‘to find ways to improve efficiency and be more cost effective’. Maria investigated one of the key contributing factors to this which is downtime, analysing data and concluding her presentation with key changes that could potentially be made to meet the departments objective.


Competing against 8 other semi-finalists, all pre-university and undergraduate students, it was a great achievement by Maria.
