Siemens salutes its university partnership
Engineering giant Siemens has honoured the University of Lincoln for its teamwork in developing Lincoln School of Engineering.
It has been named as one of the company's principal partner universities.
Paul Stewart, founding head of Lincoln School of Engineering, said: "On November 1 it will be three years since representatives from Siemens and myself were staring at the brown field site, which is now the school of engineering.
"In that short space of time we have developed the school to be the huge success it is today, satisfying a demand both in research and employment terms.

"We are extremely proud of the relationship we have built with Siemens, a collaboration which has already received a Lord Stafford Award for innovation.
"It is testament to the hard work and dedication of both partners which means the new school of engineering and a relatively new university are now standing shoulder to shoulder with other leading UK institutions."
Nick Muntz, Siemens Lincoln's managing director, said: "We are delighted that the University of Lincoln has been awarded principal partner status. We have been working with the university for many years and the Engineering Hub, the first engineering school in the UK for 20 years, is already a pioneering achievement.
"Our collaboration is focused on producing industry-ready graduates, who benefit from their exposure to a world-class engineering company, as well as excellence in engineering teaching at the university."
Newcastle, Sheffield, Loughborough and Oxford universities were also recognised as principal partners at a reception in London.
