Alvaro Rojas

Development Engineer at Rolls Royce

Since a young age, I’ve always loved tearing things apart, so that I can learn how they work and come up with ways to make them better. This curiosity and problem-solving, as well as my visits to the airport with my dad as a 12-year old, is the foundation of my interest in engineering and has inspired my career choice. I’ve known since a young age what I wanted to be – an aeronautical engineer.  Based on this passion, I travelled throughout Spain, France and the UK, studying aeronautical and mechanical engineering, finally achieving my master’s degree at Glyndwr University, sponsored by the Royal Academy of Engineering. I now support the flight tests of Rolls-Royce’s incredible jet engines on the massive double-decker Airbus A380 and on the whale shaped BelugaXL. Every day I am thrilled to go to work.
