Shruti Shalini, studying for an MEng in Mechanical Engineering, in the School of Mathematics, Computer Science & Engineering, (MCSE) is the second winner of the newly created Dean’s Award for Professional Experience.

The Award was developed by the School’s Professional Liaison Unit (PLU).

Shruti was a Manufacturing Intern with General Electric (GE) Aviation during her placement year.

While at GE Aviation, she embarked on and completed a research project with the Composites Department which involved creating and testing a panel to observe the effect of reducing dwell times on resin viscosity and porosity in the panels:

"I gained some understanding of composites and how they are used in the aviation industry; from creating a proposal to the final testing and analysis of results."

The PLU offers a variety of work-based learning programmes tailored to meet the varying requirements of employers and students in the School through the provision of placements, internships and work-based learning.

PLU Work-based Learning Advisor, Becky Jenkinson said:

Shruti has performed tremendously throughout her industrial placement at GE. During her placement presentation she admirably showcased that she was an asset to the organisation. She has made a valuable contribution in her role and I wish her all the best in her studies and future career.

In 2016, the inaugural Dean's Award for Professional Experience was won by MEng (Biomedical Engineering) student Gabriella Soffer.
