TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory was pleased to sponsor a project for the annual Engineering Visions Summer School hosted in Glasgow in September. Glasgow Caledonian University welcomed university students from around the world who worked in teams to develop a concept based around a real-life project to create a more innovative world using engineering.
Sampath Bogavilli, Principal Engineer at TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, attended the first day of the 2-week summer school giving a presentation about the company. He also provided info about the project which was to consider measures for carbon neutral and environmentally sustainable facility operations.
Later in the programme, the students and two professors visited TÜV SÜD in East Kilbride to learn more about our facilities and the size of the challenge. As the UK’s Designated Institute for Flow Measurement, TÜV SÜD operates industrial-scale physical flow measurement facilities that serve sectors including oil and gas, hydrogen and CCUS, water and life sciences.
Sampath and Muir Porter, Senior Manager at TÜV SÜD, attended the final session to see the students present their ideas. Sampath said:
“I really enjoyed the whole experience, and it was very rewarding to be able to guide the students through the project. Just talking to them was amazing as they were very smart and had some interesting ideas. As they were studying a variety of subjects, not just engineering, it gave them different perspectives. The collaboration between students from different countries was great to see. It was also interesting to engage with the other companies involved in the summer school and learn about new technologies. I studied a Master's degree in Embedded System Design Engineering at GCU so it was good to return to the campus.”
