New Engineering Team Member
At Baugh & Weedon, we are pleased to introduce Rizwan (Riz) Latif to our team as a Software Development Engineer.
Riz’s first contact with the non-destructive testing (NDT) industry was during a three-month placement at Sonatest, while completing his Masters at the University of Central Lancashire in 2000. For his masters, Riz fully wrote the transducer testing application, SonaCert. Riz stayed at Sonatest for the following seven years where he built on his Software skills, combining them with NDT technology.
During his time at Sonatest Riz also understudied some of the Senior Software Engineers on the embedded side of Software Engineering.
Riz then moved out of NDT for some time where he joined Pace in Saltaire, a world leader in technologies, products and services for the PayTV and broadband industries. As well as working in the Test Department as a Software Engineer, Riz also worked in the Network Interface Group (NIG) software team who provide highly critical software support to the rest of NIG group, as well as numerous Pace teams across 4 continents, while collaborating with silicon vendors on design, debugging and integration of their drivers.
Baugh & Weedon have since recruited Riz to support our Technical Manager, Noel and provide cutting edge Software Engineering on new projects and products.
Mike Reilly, CEO said, "Having recruited and worked with Rizwan for several years in my time at Sonatest, I was delighted that the planets aligned in such a way that we were able to hire Rizwan to expand the Baugh and Weedon Product Development Team. Not only will this boost development of additional Products for the Company, but in time we expect that Rizwan will assist in supporting key Customers for our Magnetic Particle Inspection Benches"
