A Churchill perspective by David Sampson, Churchill PG96

UK & Nordics Engineering Manager, MathWorks

I have been with MathWorks since finishing my Ph.D. in Engineering at Churchill 20 years ago, and have enjoyed a technically challenging and diverse career working with leading engineering companies in Europe, the US and Japan.  We count many Cambridge graduates among our technical team, and enjoy continuing relationships with the University through research studentships, academic collaborations… and even support for the Boat Club!  In 2023, we are offering a range of internships in our software and engineering teams at our new UK HQ on Cambridge Science Park.
