Melisa Kaner is a recent graduate of the University of Warwick where she studied for her master's degree in Systems Engineering. It was there that Melisa worked on the control systems for the University of Warwick Search & Rescue UAV which was showcased at AU Las Vegas and AU London in 2017. More recently, Melisa is a part of the Future of British Manufacturing Initiative where she has created an innovative predictive maintenance system using IoT. Melisa begins her career as a technical consultant within Autodesk later this year.
Currently in my second year studying for a PhD, investigating how additive manufacturing can be used in orthopaedic implants and joint replacements, with sponsorship from Renishaw plc. Answering tough questions like: how do we replicate the properties of bone with metal?
Also a FoBMI ambassador at Autodesk, teaching Fusion 360 and running workshops for like-minded engineers and makers. Love helping out at hackathons and involving myself if possible with projects linking art, design and engineering, often in conjunction with Imperial College Advanced Hackspace.
Learn how CP Cases, a UK Design & Manufacturing SME worked with a Digital Catalyst, to improve a process that took them 180mins down to just 15mins.
I come from the Canary Islands, in Spain. I am a Design Engineer undergraduate at Imperial. I love to work on projects where I can develop my imagination to create things that make a difference. In the future I want to work on projects based in the great outdoors or involving sports. I am also interested in art and environmental issues.
Aside from any out of pocket expenses incurred by the Digital Catalyst it is completely down to you whether you also wish to pay them for their time and expertise. Government apprenticeship schemes are available to support financing a student and we can guide you in the best way to utilise your apprentice levy funds.
You should expect to have access to a Digital Catalysts for a maximum of 80 hours, which is approximately two working weeks. After that you are free to explore extending that placement with the student and the university directly.

“Manufacture represents a crucial aspect of society in providing us with useful, vital and delightful resources. I am delighted to support the Digital Catalyst Programme to help connect emerging talent with established organisations and redefine the way we take design and innovation out to the rest of the world. I think the Digital Catalyst is an excellent way to begin this transformation”
