Have your say

A COLLABORATION between Sheffield University and engineering firm Siemens is set to benefit hundreds of students.

Siemens Metal Technologies is working with the university on an engineering challenge, which will involve 300 second-year students.

The group will spend a week on a project set by Siemens to help develop their engineering expertise.

Siemens has also announced Sheffield University will become one of its ‘principal partner’ organisations and a reception was held in London to recognise the University’s collaboration to develop graduates and foster research and innovation.

Siemens’ university partnering programme will range from joint research programmes to development of new qualifications to meet future demands and providing industry placements.

Jon Stewart, Siemens Metal Technologies site director and Sheffield Chamber of Commerce president, said: “Sheffield as a city has a strong and proud manufacturing heritage and we are committed to investing in the skills and research that will ensure it will be at the heart of the regional and national economic recovery.”
