New UCLan graduate is flying high
Georgia Green has landed a role with Airbus after graduating with a master’s in aerospace engineering
A new University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) graduate is flying high after she landed a job with a major global aerospace company.
Georgia Green graduated with a First-Class degree in MEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering this week and is now starting her career as a wing structures graduate at Airbus.
The 22-year-old, from Stoke-on-Trent, said: “I feel ecstatic to have graduated.
“After four years of study, with a pandemic in-between, it was unclear if this day would come. I’m overjoyed at my results and very proud of myself.
“I am now really happy and looking forward to entering the world of industry. I will be working in various areas of the design, testing and manufacturing of commercial aircraft wings, with further development in management roles and exposure to the commercial activation industry.”

Georgia’s love of astrophysics led her to undertake work experience in this field, but she soon discovered she wanted this to remain her hobby. After researching careers which had theoretical and practical aspects to them, she soon discovered aerospace engineering at UCLan and has never looked back.
The former Cheadle Academy and Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College pupil said: “I chose UCLan because of its diverse and advanced technology and equipment which was accessible for me to use, regardless of what year I was in and engineering course I was doing.
“From the start of the course I had the opportunity to undergo training from skilled technicians on a range of machinery which I have utilised throughout my time here at UCLan.
“It’s been a great experience, especially the module which allowed us to collaborate with other engineering students. We had to gain funding to complete a project and this gave us a real insight into how projects are managed in the engineering industry.”
Georgia was one of 4,300 students who graduated from UCLan during 14 ceremonies.
