GCU welcomes students to its first Scottish Engineering Summer Experience

PSG College of Technology students visit GCU

Glasgow Caledonian University’s School of Engineering and Built Environment has welcomed 12 students from India’s PSG College of Technology to its Scottish Engineering Summer Experience.

The students are taking part in lectures and workshops in fields including computer games design, app development, cyber security and renewable energy as well as visiting the Falkirk Wheel, the Kelpies and Whitelees Wind Farm and touring Scotland’s cultural highlights.

Martin Cullen, the School’s Associate Dean International, said: “The School is delighted to welcome students from PSG to our first Scottish Engineering Summer Experience. The students are from a mixed set of programmes but they are all attracted by the opportunity to learn more about subjects such as renewable energy, app development and games design.

“The students will be given a taste of the innovative programmes we offer at GCU, as well as take part in a host of cultural activities and visits to some of Scotland’s fascinating engineering projects. GCU staff have visited PSG before and both institutions believe such an event will help motivate students, and their parents, to enrol in GCU taught postgraduate programmes in the future.”

PSG, based in Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in science, engineering and management.
