Could you please introduce yourself and your role at AKKA?

I’m Philippe Castel and I joined AKKA in 2011 just after finishing my studies. I began to work on Powerplant Integration for Airbus Future Project Office. I grew up in this first role on different jobs for aircraft and engine manufacturers where I evolved through work and project leader. In 2019 I was nominated as Head of a department including Data Science competencies, a domain quite new for me and the division but with a great perspective of evolution. In 2020 I took on the role of Head of the division and from that moment I’ve been pushing to evolve and integrate the Digital into our legacy work.


‘’ For several years now, we have embraced digital in our work to promote a new vision of engineering. ‘’
