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.
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.
Who We Work With
The University of Lincoln is a member of the Santander Universities Global Division. The scheme provides funding for staff and student to benefit from international scholarships, mobility awards and research grants, as well as programme of internships placing talented new graduates with local small and medium-sized businesses.
The Lincoln Science & Innovation Park was created as part of a joint venture between the University of Lincoln and Lincolnshire Co-op. The science park's Joseph Banks Laboratories are home to more than 1,000 staff and students in science subjects, including our School of Pharmacy, while the nearby Boole Technology Centre provides flexible commercial space for innovative tech businesses.
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.
