School of Engineering’s Boston College Trip

Recently, our colleagues from the School of Engineering visited Boston College as part of the University of Lincoln’s vision outreach work to promote STEM on Engineering Industry Insight Day.

The learners from Boston College were those enrolled in the general engineering, and motor vehicle engineering courses, including apprentices in levels 2 and 3.

Dr Aliyu Aliyu,  Senior Lecturer in Sustainable Energy gave a presentation on our courses at the University of Lincoln, within the School of Engineering, what modules they should expect to take in each year, our research facilities, strong connection to industry and the local council, opportunities to work on industry-led independent and group projects, focus on hands-on activities, and indicative engineering salaries obtainable in the market.

They were afterwards given the opportunity to see and interact with some of the lab equipment we took there. On hand to answer their questions were the Technical Team, as well as three 2nd-4th year student volunteers who spoke to them about their university experiences and campus life.

In celebration of International Women’s Day, we are going to meet some of the inspirational women involved within the College of Science, each with their top tip for all you reading this…whether your female, male or agender.

So let’s start, introducing…

Professor Libby John, who is Pro Vice Chancellor and Head of College of Science at the University of Lincoln.

Professor Anna Wilkinson, who is a Professor of Animal Cognition within our Department of Life Sciences.

Professor Elizabeth Sklar, Professor in Agri-Robotics and Research Director of Lincoln Agri-Robotics & LIAT.

Professor Mini Saaj, who is a Professor and Global Chair in Robotic Engineering.

Professor Claire Hills, Professor of Renal Physiology within our Department of Life Sciences.

Professor Sharon Green, who is Deputy Head for Apprenticeships and Business Partnerships at our Holbeach Campus.

I hope you enjoyed today’s read and found all the top tips given useful!

Goodbye February, Hello March

Is anyone else excited for a new month? Here at the College of Science, we are.

March is by far one of the most exciting months for us and science, with British Science Week giving us a 10-day celebration of science, technology, engineering, and maths from 11-20 March.

Over the past couple of months, we have been busy planning our on-campus event to celebrate British Science Week. Our event will take place on Wednesday 16 March, from 12:30pm until 4pm, in our Isaac Newton Building at our city-centre Brayford Pool Campus.

The event will include a science showcase, where you will be able to get involved with interactive activities, including testing out our fantastic Virtual Reality equipment – how cool is that? We will also have a schedule of talks delivered by some of our academic staff who are experts in their fields and can’t wait to share their passion with the next generation of scientists.

If you would like more information on our event and to book your space, please click here.

Can’t attend our event but want to get involved? Why not enter our competition?

We have two £50 Amazon gift cards up for grabs and one could be yours. So let’s be crystal clear, all you have to do is grow the biggest and brightest salt crystal following our recipe, adding in your own experimental materials to make them spectacular! It’s as easy as 1,2,3!
