Two Capital engineering students are celebrating after winning bronze at a national skills event.

Edinburgh Napier mechatronics undergrads Ruth Needle and Stephan McColl recently competed in the UK World Skills Show on the invite of Siemens Automation. The three-day technical challenge saw them take on a range of mechanical and software-related tasks.

The Skills Show is the UK’s biggest skills and careers event, and aims to inspire the fashion designers, web developers and engineers of tomorrow.

Lecturer James McWhinnie said: “It was a real honour to be invited to the event as we were the only university in Scotland to compete. It was a great experience for the students and has helped equip them with real employability skills.”

CAPTION: Ruth and Stephan are pictured with Professor Andrea Nolan, Principal & Vice-Chancellor of Edinburgh Napier University.
