Working in safety critical sectors including aerospace and nuclear is incredibly stimulating but has its challenges. The extreme technical diversity and depth of this work will be discussed in the context of research conducted in academia and the role of individuals in driving it. This talk aims to highlight key career stages and the risks and benefits associated with possible career paths. Other observations on the value (or otherwise!) of a PhD, work / life balance and the value of networking will be outlined. The technical backdrop will span diverse applications including watch spring wires, Joint Strike Fighter, and submarine reactors. In addition it will describe the worst lecture ever presented!
