Gabriela Adamczyk – Prototyping Engineer

Gabi graduated from The University of Manchester with a degree in MEng Aerospace Engineering.

She was snapped up by Renishaw to work as a Process Improvement Engineer, before moving to Sensor City in 2019.

In under two years, Gabi has progressed from an engineering student to a key member of a multi-disciplinary engineering team, responsible for delivering commercial contracts and direct line management to our interns, demonstrating her future leader capabilities.

Committed to continuous professional development, Gabi has quickly learnt new skills, including 3D printing and CAD, and her drive and talent will no doubt see her progress further.

Gabi is an excellent mentor to the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University students that are engaged with Sensor City. Whether through official coaching or assisting with student society projects, Gabi regularly helps upskill undergraduates to use the on-site prototyping equipment and learn hybrid-engineering techniques.

She also supports The Girls’ Network, inspiring school age girls to become enthused by technology, conducting tours of our labs and sharing personal industry experiences and insight.

Gabi’s role model status within the tech industry started long before she joined Sensor City however, having been an active STEMNET Ambassador for five years throughout college.

During University, Gabi worked for Manchester’s Science and Industry Museum, as well as teaching programming to female primary school children at a weekly robotics club.

She continues to give back to the local community through voluntary work, recently producing thousands of PPE parts for the NHS during the pandemic.
