Chris Waters

Graduate Engineer

"I love working in the rail industry and I don't have an anorak!"

I studied Electronic and Electrical Engineering at Strathclyde in Glasgow, but had never worked in engineering until after I graduated.

I was attracted to the rail industry, and Siemens Rail Automation in particular, because it is unique in its strict safety requirements.

The real benefit of being here is the chance to do something that will make a difference to potentially millions of people. The railways are always going to be around so there's plenty to do!

I expected the company to be more old-fashioned, but Siemens Rail Automation is a forward thinker in the rail industry. It isn't happy to sit and do the same as other companies are doing.

When graduates join Siemens Rail Automation they're joining a company with links to others around the world, and working with people who have a huge amount of experience and ability.
