Work Experience Programme for International Students – Visit to ClydeUnion Pumps, Glasgow

27/10/2011

 

This visit will take place on Wednesday 2nd November 2011, between 10:30 and 3pm. ClydeUnion Pumps is one of the most experienced specialised engineering companies in the world. Formed through the acquisition and integration of a series of highly respected pump manufacturers on both sides of the Atlantic, ClydeUnion Pumps incorporates an accumulation of over 300 years of engineering expertise.

We are pleased to be able to offer a visit to ClydeUnion Pumps which will give students an insight in to how the company works, what their business is about and the types of careers available within the organisation.

The two main companies that form ClydeUnion Pumps both have a rich heritage and impressive track record. Clyde Pumps was formed in May 2007 when the Weir Pumps (Glasgow) business was acquired from the Weir Group plc, but its roots go back to 1871 when two brothers, George and James Weir, founded the engineering firm of G. & J. Weir. Union Pump has an equally impressive pedigree and had been producing advanced pumps since its inception in 1885 in Michigan, USA.

The visit will include a ‘Day in the life of key staff. There will also be a Question and Answer session at the end.

For more information and to receive an application form, contact Elaine.E.Wilson@glasgow.ac.uk by 30 October 2011 ensuring that you quote the reference numberOP25/CU2. Please note that there may not be places left by the 30 October 2011 as this visit was oversubscribed when offered last year.
