University students welcomed
20 February 2018
The next generation of naval architects and marine engineers were welcomed to Tritec Marine’s offices recently as part of a university field trip, gaining valuable insight into the industry professions.
Strathclyde University students ranging from first year freshers to PHD post-graduates attended a special afternoon of seminars, discussions and simulations from Company representatives at Alba House on 13th February.
As well as lectures from Tritec Marine engineers on marine structural response, hydrodynamic loading, and Virtual Reality Engineering, the students were also offered a tour of neighbouring Scotia House’s bridge and engine simulators.
The trip was arranged by student Vasiliki Pasia, who was inspired to request the support of Tritec Marine after attending last year’s Institute of Naval Architects’ LNG Conference in Alba House.
Speaking on the day, the ‘Naval Architecture with high performance marine vehicles’ undergraduate, said: “I would like to thank Tritec Marine for accepting my request and for organising this trip.
“Thank you for the hospitality and for demonstrating your work to us.
“I do believe it’s beneficial to have a closer look at industry companies to know what type of jobs we are going for.
“The simulations shown in the auditorium and bridge simulator have been extremely beneficial to our learning.”
Jamie Roberts, CAD Engineer, Tritec Marine, offered a Virtual Reality Engineering demonstration to the students and answered questions on the service.
He said: “It was a pleasure welcoming the students to Alba House to learn more about the work we do.
“Their eagerness to learn more about modern industry practices was very encouraging and allowed for interesting discussions on a range of topics.
“We hope the knowledge they will have gained from the visit will further motivate them to achieve their professional ambitions within our industry.”
