LiftEx route guidance to graduate excellence

Robert Gordon University (RGU) is supporting The Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) in promoting the Lifting Industry to young people and educators in the Aberdeen region.

At LiftEx 2022 – the free-to-attend flagship event hosted by LEEA at P&J Live, in Aberdeen on 5-6 October 2022 – RGU will deliver a 15-minute talk about the routes to the university’s engineering school, which will be presented by Dr Sam Burgess and Dr Sheikh Islam from the university. RGU will also be spending an hour demonstrating some of its current and on-going projects involving technologies such as robotics.

The representation at LiftEx continues LEEA’s relationship with RGU which includes the Robert Gordon University Awards, made in recognition of excellence in a student’s final year project / dissertation in the field of engineering and the Lifting Industry.

Ross Moloney, CEO of LEEA, says: “We are particularly proud to be recognising excellence in lifting at Robert Gordon University, which is renowned for its expertise in engineering. The work it carries out in relation to its offshore programme has clear links with the services offered by many of our members. The LEEA Award is a launch pad for winning students while also progressing LEEA’s vital work to support and encourage new talent into our industry. At LiftEx, students looking at taking an engineering decree will gain an excellent insight into the opportunities open to them.”
