Vincent Ward

  • Systems Integrator at Cougar Automation, specialising in Industrial Automation
  • HND Electronic Engineering

Vincent Ward completed his HNC and HND in Electronic Engineering with Hopwood Hall College and is currently working in industrial automation with Cougar Automation, the UK’s leading Control System Integration Company.

“Three years ago I was working in retail and felt like I was stuck in a dead-end job. I wanted to change my career path, so I decided to go to Hopwood Hall College to find out what I could do. After speaking to a few tutors about different courses I found an interest in Electronic Engineering.

“Although the course was challenging, considering I had no background in electronics, with guidance from staff and a desire to succeed I was able to complete my HNC whilst also working as an Electronics Technician at the college. After securing a job at Cougar Automation I completed my HND in 2016.

“Studying at Hopwood has truly changed my life, I am now working in a huge industry that I am passionate about and have a number of opportunities available to me to progress in my career.”
