Michael Groarke, Robot Technical Support at RARUK Automation

New undergraduate joins the Technical Support team

With demand for its automation systems growing exponentially year on year, RARUK Automation is optimally placed to give engineering undergraduates the best possible workplace experience, and the latest beneficiary is Michael Groarke. He has joined the Shefford-based company under the Year in Industry Scheme as part of his Mechanical Engineering studies at the University of Nottingham.

Previously a student at John Henry Newman Secondary and Sixth Form College in Stevenage, Michael’s main responsibility at RARUK Automation will be conducting feasibility studies for the company’s collaborative robots and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs). And with one of the leading market research companies in intelligent automation predicting that mobile robot revenues alone will grow by 24% in 2020, he looks set for a busy year.


“This placement is a brilliant opportunity for me to practice the skills I have learned at school and university and to expand my knowledge from experts in the industry,” Michael said. “I’m looking forward to gaining substantial engineering experience and seeing my abilities develop in a real-world setting.”
