Swansea University to benefit from engineering partnership

Published: Saturday, 23 April 2016   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Swansea University has agreed a deal with Rohde & Schwarz to equip the College of Engineering’s electronic teaching laboratories on the Bay Campus.

The deal is thought to be the start of a longer term partnership between the market leading company and the university.

The firm has supplied 66 workstations, totalling £800,000 worth of equipment, in three separate labs with digital multimeters, function generators, power supplies and oscilloscopes.

The Bay Campus provides postgraduate and undergraduate teaching facilities, research space and work areas for staff and students involved in material and mechanical engineering, civil engineering and electronic engineering.

A deal was struck after a European tender process had taken place, due to the company’s approach to the partnership and the standard of test equipment that was offered in the deal.

Benefits of the deal

Alongside the equipment, the company has made a commitment to the university to organise a visit for the engineering students to the firm’s factory to take a look at manufacturing lines and gather information.

Visits will allow students much greater insight into how the electronic industry works and what challenges they will face if they chose to develop production products.

The university also has an annual off-site assessment for students to give a presentation on oscilloscope use, which Rohde & Schwarz have agreed to be a part of.

As part of their participation the best third or fourth year student project will receive an oscilloscope – a piece of electronic testing equipment – as an award.

Rhode & Schwarz has made equipping the next generation of engineers with the appropriate equipment one of their central aims for the business. The firm views the opportunity to be a part of one of the UK’s top electronic engineering departments as an integral part of their plan.
