Steel Framed Engineered Solutions Limited recently hosted Mechanical Engineering students from the University of the West Indies, St Augustine campus at its head-quarters located at Don Miguel Extension Road, San Juan.
The visit provided students with insight about steel framed construction and roofing being done by the company. Students met with Executive Chairman of AP Scott Trinidad Limited, Daniel Scott and Engineering Consultant, Randy Persad who provided a tour of the facility and provided information about the capabilities of its steel framed business.
"Having the Engineering students from UWI hosted by Steel Framed Engineered Solutions was important to us because we are always looking to facilitate the next generation of professionals and aid in their development. I hope the visit was very beneficial and it plays a pivotal role in the development of their careers when they eventually graduate from University," said Executive Chairman Scott after the visit.
Persad, a former Engineering student at the University of the West Indies stated, "The students from UWI were able to get industry knowledge about some of the cutting edge work we have been doing with steel-framed construction. There is a big jump from the classroom to the working environment and I hope that some of the things they learnt from the visit open their eyes to the diversity of the industry and what is required of them in the working world."
He added, "What we are doing at Steel Framed Engineered Solutions is very special. We are changing the construction and roofing industry in the Caribbean with our new technology. Therefore, it was really good to expose the students to this innovative approach. The students were able to tour our factory and visit our model home on the compound which provided context from the start of a project to it end."
