TWI project leader, Muhammad Shaheer delivered a careers presentation to students at the University of Birmingham.
The presentation, which was delivered to students from the School of Metallurgy and Materials, formed part of a wider careers event at the University, with over 20 undergraduates and some graduates attending to find out more about careers, research and study opportunities at TWI, The Welding Institute, and the National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC).
The presentation spoke how TWI has been serving the needs of industry for over 70 years to provide Industrial Member companies with authoritative and impartial expert advice, knowhow and safety assurance through engineering, materials and joining technologies.
There was also a presentation on how The Welding Institute provides professional support for engineers, with a focus on the work of The Younger Members’ Committee and their outreach work in schools and colleges across the UK.
Muhammad also explained how NSIRC leverages public and industrial funding to deliver original research alongside industry-relevant training for the next generation of structural integrity engineers.
Supported by TWI-based University of Cambridge PhD student, Aamna Asad and University of Teesside doctorate student, Vishal Vats, Muhammad noted that, “Aamna and Vishal were very helpful in setting up and manning the stand as well as providing fresh perspective for NSIRC. The 15-minute presentation was well attended given the total number of attendees at the event."
