We are proud of our industry partnerships and continue to build sustainable long-term relationships with a diverse range of organisations. Our goal is to help drive local, regional and national economic growth and prosperity by delivering the skills and innovation industry needs, while ensuring our students benefit from the connections we make.

Siemens Energy Partnership

In 2009, in collaboration with Siemens (and now Siemens Energy), the University of Lincoln established the first dedicated new engineering school to be created in the UK for more than two decades.

This long-standing collaboration has won a string of national awards and acclaim, including a prestigious Lord Stafford Award and a Times Higher Education Award.

Lincoln is now one of only a handful of UK universities to hold Siemens Global Principal Partner status, a recognition of the University's wide-ranging research collaborations and success in developing graduate talent with the company.

By incorporating industry input in course content, providing work experience placements, and offering valuable opportunities to contribute to cutting-edge research, graduates are prepared to make an immediate contribution on entering the workplace.

Greater Lincolnshire Engineering And Manufacturing (GLEAM) Network

An exciting new initiative founded by the School of Engineering and Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (GLLEP) Manufacturing Board, offering huge potential to support the manufacturing sector across the region and bridge the gap between academia and manufacturing businesses.

The network will work to support the growth and development of SMEs by promoting best practice, manufacturing solutions and partnership opportunities, and will showcase technological advances, cutting edge thinking and act as a knowledge-transfer vehicle between academia and industry. 

Attend events, engage with fellow industry-specialists and tackle some of the challenges facing the sector as part of a wider community.
