Brian – Graduate Design Engineer
Brian joined us in 2021 after completing a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from NUIG and now is applying the technical work he learned in designing bespoke machines for customers. Brian – a Graduate Mechanical Design Engineer at KAON – uses CAD software to design and detail mechanical parts. He follows each machine on its entire journey from conception to fully tested.

“The work is hands on, and I get involved in testing the equipment as well as designing it. I get to see the machine go from concept to fully tested while being involved in everything along the way.”

Outside of work Brian enjoys hurling, football and reading
