Bowers Group has become an official metrology sponsor of the University of Wolverhampton Racing Team (UWR), which is the only team that uses students to design and manufacture, a racing car and then compete in the Formula Three (F3) Cup; the team also competes in the AR Morgan Challenge.
The University of Wolverhampton’s degree course offers a unique opportunity to both study and put theory into practice in a fast-paced racing environment.
Students are encouraged to put their skills and stamina to the test in order to engineer cars that can compete effectively against national and international racing teams with world-class drivers.
Dave Smith, key account manager at Bowers Group UK (www.bowersgroup.com
), said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to engage with the future talent of engineering and manufacturing, capturing students’ imagination and interest in metrology, as part of their wider university education.
"We will be providing a selection of metrology equipment, giving the students a head start in familiarisation with the tools that will be invaluable to them during their future careers.”
UWR fund-raising and sponsorship manager Terry Gibson said: “We are very pleased to welcome Bowers Group as an official sponsor.
“We are trying to give the students the opportunity to interact with industry that will set them up for success in their future careers, so we are getting them used to product requests and orders, understanding lead times and developing their soft skills.
"Giving students the opportunity to be part of the racing team instils a strong sense of discipline and teamwork that they can take into their future careers.”
