Star student Emma Latham claimed a special award at her Bournemouth University graduation ceremony with Dorset structural steel firm REIDsteel.

Emma was among four mechanical engineering students to work with the Christchurch-based firm on a hangar doors project.

She received a Student Design Award for the excellence of her project report titled ‘Improving the safety of aircraft hangar doors with REIDsteel’.

Richard Hanson, REIDsteel’s Pre-Construction Director, presented Emma with her award certificate when she graduated with a BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering degree.

He said: “Congratulations to Emma on her graduation and for winning this richly deserved award.

“She, and her fellow mechanical engineering students, are a credit to themselves and Bournemouth University.

“All at REIDsteel have been impressed tremendously by their aptitude, enthusiasm, and commitment on the hangar doors project.

“We greatly value our links with Bournemouth University and wish Emma the very best for the future.”

REIDsteel – the trading name of John Reid & Sons (Strucsteel) Ltd – is working with Bournemouth University on a new hangar door system to improve safety and useability. Mechanical engineering students used it as the topic for their final project.

A set of inflatable fabric seals mounted on the main Hangar doors and matched to the shape of the fuselage ensure that the weather stays outside.
