Industrial Projects Scheme (SHIPS)

The pioneering Sheffield Industrial Projects Scheme is a teaching scheme which has been running successfully for nearly 40 years.  It introduces 2nd year undergraduate Electronic & Electrical Engineering students to real industrial problem solving; bridging the gap between academic theory and industrial practice.
The aims of the scheme are to tackle industrially inspired engineering problem based projects with realistic, practical and commercial constraints and help fulfil the Engineering Council’s requirement that “solving real engineering problems” should form a “significant component of the education base of future Chartered Engineers”
Dr. Richard Clark and Dr. Dave Powell (both Principal Engineers in Magnomatics’ Drive Technology Division) are involved with the scheme and met with around 25 students together with faculty members.  The students were shown a presentation and taken on a tour of our workshop.
The undergraduates were presented with 4 technical challenges for them to go away and study throughout the autumn term.  Richard and Dave will continue to support the students and will attend a presentation at the university to receive their findings on the projects.
Magnomatics benefits from having access to highly motivated students taking a fresh and intensive look at the projects set them.  Whilst the students gain valuable experience of tackling real-world problems and teamwork giving them a sound base needed to build future careers as professional engineers.
