Tribosonics, a Sheffield-based company that uses high-tech embedded sensing technology to provide powerful and targeted data to its clients. Tribosonics is using its technology to drive transformation in the transport, power generation, and manufacturing sectors.
My experience was packed full of new learning opportunities, both with practical data analysis, as well as cultivating new spreadsheets to help keep inventory of stocks. Bridging the gap between academia and industry is a crucial opportunity, and being able to gain feedback directly from industry is the fastest way to learn which skills hold the highest priority.

There has arguably never been a time where such a light has shone on the challenges students face in managing and striving to meet their academic targets but also, in striving to stay happy, stay well and stay rested. Students around the country are looking for ways to support their wellbeing which is exactly why SELA Cohort 2018 graduate Matthew Bate is currently developing a first of its kind, entirely student-focused health and wellbeing service, U Calm.

As a mechanical engineer, I have been lucky enough to enjoy a varied and interesting course. I’ve experienced everything from electronics to thermodynamics and material science, as well a boatload of physical mechanics. A lot of my experience as an undergraduate engineer has centred on equations and learning how to use them in an individual exam environment. These are really important skills, and help build the kind of understanding that is essential for modern engineers, but the focus is heavily on the theory. At Sheffield, I have been a part of some fantastic group work modules that focus on more than just the theory, on soft skills such as team work. However, it has been my time at SELA which has really reinforced my team working abilities.
