The students, Jonathan and Michael

PhD students from Manchester University's IEEE Power and Energy Society, studying Electrical Engineering came to visit the wind farm on 24th July. We got some great feedback from the students:

" It was well organised offering an alternative insight into the complexities associated with onshore wind. The experts were friendly and open to questions."

"Very valuable experience to visit an industrial company related to the course we are studying."

Jon and Michael gave the students a tour of the wind farm which included a visit to the control room where a presentation was given, and where the students got to ask in-depth questions about the engineering and technical side of the site.

James Hill PhD researcher noted "It cannot be stressed enough just how useful the opportunity to get out into the 'real world' is for students so they can have a feel for the impact of their work". 

Even though we are a small team, we always try and accommodate requests from related professional institutions.
