I recently undertook a month of work experience at Vitec, one half of which consisted of me shadowing engineers in their jobs and spending time in each department – mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, software, testing etc.
The other half of the time, I was allowed to use the company’s resources to build a project of my choice.
I chose to build an IoT chess board; a physical chess board that interfaces with online chess. Details can be found here.
My full project report can be found here.
