This Monday, 18th March, SUEU will be joined by a recent Salford Graduate, Jack Mellor from the global defence company, MBDA Missile Systems.
Jack graduated from Salford last year and took up a graduate role at the MBDA offices in Lostock working primarily on warhead design and lethality.
The talk will give you the chance to…..
- Learn about the company and current job opportunities
- Learn about current projects happening within the company
- Learn the basics of warhead design
We will be meeting at 7pm in Boardroom 1 and afterwards, heading to the Crescent Pub for a few drinks and a crack at their pub quiz.
On Monday, the 11th of March, SUEU is delighted to welcome back former SUEU Treasurer, Daniel Moran. Daniel graduated from Salford with an MEng Degree in Aeronautical Engineering in July 2012 and took up a graduate engineer position with Assystem in the Autumn of that year.
Daniel will talk about his role with in the company, current projects, what you can expect as a graduate engineer and job opportunities at the incredibly broad company at which he works.
This talk is a must for aspiring Aeronautical Engineers and any soon-to-be graduates.
Afterwards, we will be off to the Crescent to do the pub quiz and and we hope to see you there!!
We at SUEU have secured us a visit to the Jaguar/Landrover manufacturing site at Halewood on Wednesday the 6th of March! The Halewood site is home to the production of the Range Rover Evoque and the Land Rover Freelander 2 as well as historically manufacturing the Jaguar x-type and the Ford Escort.
The trip will consist of a tour of the companies education centre and assembly lines with a chance to witness a brand spanking new Range Rover role of the production line.
There are thirty places available on the trip which is absolutely FREE to SUEU members that have paid there membership though the students union. Places will be reserved on a strictly first come, first served basis. The coach will leave Maxwell at 12pm and we hope to be back for 5.30pm.
Don’t miss out on a fantastic oppurtunity to see British engineering at its best! Sign up through this link:

This Monday we are delighted to welcome back a recent Salford graduate, James Dickie of Thales. James left Salford this summer to take up a role as an Avionics Systems Engineer with the company. James will speak about his experiences so far, the current project he is working on as well as Thales as a U.K/Global company and the companies graduate program.
This talk is an absolute must for anybody considering a career in the Aeronautical sector as well as a useful talk for anybody wishing to be an engineer.
Afterwards, as always, we will be heading to the Crescent and all are welcome!!
This Monday we are very happy to be once again joined by our very own Dr. Rahulan for a talk entitled “The Magic of Concorde.”
Starting with a brief history of the quest for speed and the breaking of the sound barrier, this talk will address key design issues such as the holy matrimony of a supersonic airframe with a subsonic engine face, shock waves, stability margins and kinetic heating as the flow field changes its personality during transonic acceleration. Generation of a suitable solution for overall operational success which led to the design of Concorde will be discussed and compared with many alternative configurations, all of which failed to tame the fuel consumption factor. The talk will be rounded off with the sequence of events leading to the loss of F-BTSC, return to service and a design modification study for a Mark 2 version … if it happens.
The talk will be taking place this Monday (11th) at 7pm, in Boardroom 1 of University House. We will of course be heading to the Crescent for a crack at their pub quiz.
See you there.
So in an uncharacteristic turn, we’re off to play crazy golf this Monday night!
As you know we’ve been a bit late starting this semester and with our first speaker booked in for the 11th Feb, we thought “what better way to spend our first meeting?”
We will be meeting at 7pm, on Monday 4th Feb in our usual place, Boardroom 1 University House. We will then be getting a taxi down to the Trafford Center which will all be payed for! Just bring £6 for your entry to the golf course and you’re all set. I can also confirm they have a laser quest next door if we’re feeling adventurous.
See you all there!
Free Foundation Course being taught in Gear Technology.
SUEU is pleased to present David Brown, A 150 year old British Engineering firm. This is the company that literally put the ‘DB’ in Aston Martin and built many of the aeroplane parts and tank transmissions that helped Britain to win WWII.
Today David Brown continues it’s heritage of building state of the art gearboxes and power systems for modern applications in the Defence, Energy, Rail and Mining Industries.
This event is being run in conjunction with the Aeronautical and Mechanical courses – with the aim of providing students with the fundamental knowledge of gear design and specification.
As I’m sure you are all aware this is not something that is directly covered as part of the undergraduate degree programs – but it is essential knowledge for any practicing engineer.
Their Group Director, Graham Penning, OBE, will be taking a 3 part course in Gear Technology at the University.
- Free Course in Gear Design and Technology
- Taught by leading industry experts
- Develop a necessary and valuable skill
- Delivered in three 90 minute session
- For All 3rd and 4th Year Aero and Mechanical Students.
Taking place on:
- Wednesday 6th, 13th and 20th February
