Wright CI, Faure D and Bissemo R

Hands-on experience in applied engineering disciplines is imperative as it provides an opportunity to work with new people, on new projects and potentially in new places. Global Heat Transfer, part of the Global Group of Companies located in Staffordshire in the UK, is a specialist engineering company working in the heat transfer sector providing engineering services and heat transfer fluids to the manufacturing sector. Global Heat Transfer has worked with the CESI Engineering School in Paris, France for the last 3 summers and trained four students in the area of heat transfer. This article outlines the experiences of the latest students and discusses some of the advantages that a company gains from visiting students.
