Salus Technical helps to bridge gap between academia and industry

22 February 2021

Aberdeenshire-headquartered process safety firm, Salus Technical, has teamed up with the University of Edinburgh to provide the next generation of engineers the opportunity to work with real-life industry software.

Salus Technical MD and founder, David Jamieson, offered the company’s new risk assessment software solution – Bowtie Master – free-of-charge to university students of degrees related to process safety, such as chemical and process safety engineering. Aimed at enhancing and streamlining the risk assessment process across a range of sectors, Bowtie Master will give these students the opportunity to experience pioneering industry-relevant software as part of their studies.

The University of Edinburgh has accepted the offer for their students, and asked David to carry out a lecture for undergraduate students on their Chemical Engineering degree course.

David is currently in discussions with a number of universities across the UK, several of whom are keen to use the software with their students. Read more…
