Engineering students find creative solutions for REME

​Level 3 Engineering students at Reading College presented their ideas to solve current problems that the Army currently face to officers from Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers (REME) today. This is the latest in a series of visits by the REME, as part of the work they have been undertaken with Activate Learning engineering students over the last year. ​The students were tasked with designing solutions to 20 problems currently faced by the Army in the field and then presented their findings to REME team members. Ideas included a robot that could carry soldiers' kit, a remote weapon system,an SV step to improve stability and access and an electromagnetic gun. Each student received a certificate afterwards and graduated as a gold level Industrial Cadet, in recognition of their hard work. The two winning teams will compete at the next stage of the competition, which will see them work to develop their ideas further in two weeks’ time.
