Siemens names Sheffield University as principal partner

Sheffield University has been named as one of Siemens’ principal partner universities in recognition of the collaborative relationship between the organisations in the development of the School of Engineering.

Siemens Metal Technologies is currently working with the university to engage in an engineering faculty-wide project dubbed the Global Engineering Challenge, which will see 300 second-year engineering undergraduates tackle a project set by Siemens Industry as part of its drive to up-skill the local graduate engineering community.

This builds on Siemens Metal Technologies providing advice on taught materials and assisting with procuring integrating equipment for the planned Sheffield University Technical College, which will specialise in advanced engineering and manufacturing.
