Supporting education and innovation in engineering and business
Secomak believes in supporting the surrounding community and has developed a strong relationship with the University of Hertfordshire. Over the past ten years the organisation has welcomed over 100 students working on a variety of research projects, from undergraduates to PhD researchers. The organisation currently employs 2 undergraduate students, 3 former alumni and 1 member of staff from the University.
Secomak has also collaborated on 2 Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) with the University to develop industry defining technology and share our knowledge with the design engineers and business leaders of tomorrow. Further information on the first KTP can be found here.
In 2009 Secomak funded and installed a fully functional drying centre at the University’s Innovation Research Centre. The centre is utilised by both Secomak and University students for customer testing and research projects. See our testing and production facilities page for further information on the drying centre.
