Students from London South Bank University visit NSIRC and the world leading research facilities at TWI

On February 6, NSIRC hosted visiting students and professors from London South Bank University (LSBU), who came to TWI in order to learn more about the benefits of a postgraduate degree with NSIRC, and to see the world class research facilities onsite at Granta Park, 5 miles from the city of Cambridge.

After arriving onsite at NSIRC, students were greeted by NSIRC staff members James Brookman and Chellappan Thirunavukkarasu, who gave presentations on TWI and NSIRC to date.

The plan for the day was to show these promising LSBU students and engineers, in detail, exactly what NSIRC is as an organisation, why it exists, and the service it provides in bridging the gap between academia and industry.

The visiting party from LSBU was also treated to lunch in the Granta Centre, as well as an extensive tour of the LSBU laboratory space at NSIRC and the TWI welding halls, which are filled with millions of pounds worth of engineering research equipment.

“It was a pleasure to welcome these promising young engineers to our site for the day,” said Chel of NSIRC Project Operations. “With the support of our sponsors Lloyd’s Register Foundation, BP and TWI, we have been able to build these world leading postgraduate research facilities, and we want more students to have the opportunity to see it for themselves, and understand how they stand to benefit.”

At a recent Tipper Group talk held in January 2018 at TWI, Dame Sue Ion of the National Skills Academy of Nuclear (NSAN) described TWI as a “jewel in the crown” of Britain’s engineering research facilities. Such esteemed visitors and guest as Dame Sue Lon, are regularly visiting the research facilities, something TWI and NSIRC do not take for granted.

NSIRC is happy to provide a tour of its facilities to any students from University groups interested in industry led postgraduate courses.
