UWL students in safe hands thanks to GRAHAM PPE donation
Civil engineering students at the University of West London (UWL) have benefited from a collection of brand new safety equipment, thanks to a donation from GRAHAM.
Students across the university’s civil engineering and built environment courses will make the most of hi-vis jackets, protective googles, hard hats, gloves and boots to give them a flying start as they get to grips with study in the labs and out on site.
GRAHAM is proud to be one of UWL’s eminent industrial partners and provides work placements and insight for students as part of its continued efforts to support trainees.
Professor Amir Alani, Executive Dean of UWL’s School of Computing and Engineering said:
“We are so grateful to GRAHAM for this wonderful selection of much-needed equipment which will help our students with the practical side of their courses in our labs and during field work.
“Our teaching and learning are built around links with major partners in industry which is what allows us to give students access to the latest and most relevant training. We have developed highly successful partnerships with industry in recent years that have brought significant benefits to our students and their education. This donation is another depiction of how many benefits those partnerships bring.”
John Deery, Project Manager for GRAHAM, said:
“It was a pleasure to be able to provide this donation to students at UWL, who will benefit enormously from the new safety equipment as they embark on their journey into the world of civil engineering and the built environment.
“At GRAHAM we believe that by building strong partnerships with education providers, we can inspire the next generation and help attract them into the many exciting and rewarding career opportunities available in our sectors.”
