Nurturing tomorrow's engineering talent

Hoping to inspire the next generation of engineers, we are pleased to renew our support of the Engineering Education Scheme (EES). Now something of an annual tradition, the latest project saw Research and Design Engineers Robert Ng and Rajiv Banik work closely with a group of pupils from Holyhead School in Birmingham.

Designed to provide students with an in-depth experience of science, engineering and technology to help them make informed decisions about their future studies and career, the EES links Year 12 pupils with local companies to examine real business problems. Working together to find feasible solutions, the pupils gain practical skills and insight - while the participating companies benefit from fresh perspectives and new thinking on genuine commercial challenges.

This year, the team have been working on a project to remove 'rags' from the rollforming process, by designing a system that will effectively lubricate the rolls whilst looking aesthetically pleasing. In December, Robert and Rajiv joined the pupils at the dedicated EES workshop at the University of Birmingham, where the group discussed the problem and built a model of the system. The pupils then had time to prepare for the assessment day, which took place in May and was judged by Robert and Rajiv's colleague in R&D, Richard Tsang.

"Working with the students has been a really rewarding experience and it's great that we're able to contribute to the community in this way," says Robert. "We're very happy with the progress made on the project; in fact we're so pleased with the effort they've put in that we've organised for three of the students to join us in the R&D team for additional work experience over the summer."

Yesterday the R&D team attended the EES Assessment day, where Richard Tsang was amongst the competition judges. The day consisted of: A presentation to an Assessment Panels and team interviews at the display stand. "The team did extremely well, the standard of the competition was high, competing against schools partnered with companies such as: Jaguar, Rolls Royce and Air Bus, to name a few.

Work experience with the R&D team has also been organised for 3-4 of the students in the summer. We are happy to contribute to the local community and hope we have provided a positive insight into what it is like to work within the Engineering Industry", says Robert.

A big thank you to everyone who made this year's project possible.
