Phil Kosylo

Full profile 

Since graduating from Loughborough University with a BSc in Design with Engineering Materials, I have completed a two year graduate engineering programme with Radius Systems, a manufacturer, supplier and innovator of polyethylene (PE) pipe systems and services. The programme included two long term placements; one in Production Engineering at our Co. Durham site and the other within the Innovation and Development department at our Derbyshire head office. Both placements stretched and challenged my understanding of materials and heavily involved the engineering principles I learnt from my time at Loughborough. In my current role I am the link between Innovation & Technology and Sales, Marketing and Operations. New product initiatives come through me and I ensure a feasibility study is undertaken before handing over to the Innovation and Design Engineering Team. I also manage a team of people, looking after the Development Laboratory and Product Data Office.

I am in contact with many of the friends I met a Loughborough and we tend to still use Loughborough as the perfect, central reunion, location to reminisce about evenings spent in the Students Union and continue to convince ourselves what a great 6-a-side football team we formed!!
