Finn Coyle CEnv via IMechE
Head of Engineering, Buses at Transport for London
Finn is a Mechanical Engineer with a background in diesel engine performance and emissions development. Having studied an engineering degree with a motorsport bias, the plan to follow classmates into the world of F1 was scuppered after he realised he was a bit rubbish at concept design! An interest in thermodynamics and the study of diesel engine combustion for his final year project went against the grain of his fellow students and helped secure him a place on Caterpillar Engines graduate scheme, where he spent four years in the R&D department in diesel engine development and emissions control.
