RAEng’s industrial secondment success for EPC members

RAEng_Logo_Blue_BlackCongratulations to seven EPC members on securing a place in the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Industrial Secondment scheme. The scheme will see them spending up to 12 months working onsite with an industrial partner, collaborating on a project with a direct industrial application.

The secondment scheme, say the Academy,  provides a valuable opportunity to establish strategic partnerships between industry and academia based on collaborative research projects, facilitating knowledge transfer and enabling academics to gain first-hand experience of working in an industrial environment.

They are:

Dr Rafic Ajaj, University of Southampton, seconded to Airbus Operations Limited.

Dr Tao Chen, University of Surrey, seconded to Unilever UK Central Resources Limited.

Dr Andrea Da Ronch, University of Southampton, seconded to Airbus Operations Limited.

Dr Gillian Ragsdell, Loughborough University, seconded to the Energy Technologies Institute

Dr Siraj Ahmed Shaikh, Coventry University, seconded to MIRA Ltd.

Dr Rafael Mauricio Morales Viviescas, University of Leicester, seconded to AgustaWestland.
