Briggs specialises in delivering high-quality process engineering for the industry worldwide.

Briggs Engineering Graduate Scheme is officially accredited by the IChemE ACTS programme

We are delighted to announce that the Briggs Engineering Graduate Training Scheme is fully accredited under the IChemE ACTS programme, and will be delivered from our Global Technical Centre in Burton on Trent. A huge thank you to our Technical Director, John Hancock who has led this initiative from the start and ensured we gain this prestigious accreditation as a business in line with the introduction of our new Global Technical Centre.

The Briggs Engineering Graduate Training Scheme encourages our young engineers to develop their practical engineering skills through supporting the delivery of global projects across a number of industries. As part of their growth, we actively encourage our engineers “to get chartered” in their respective disciplines by following a structured training programme. This accreditation will enable our process engineers to engage with the IChemE through working towards full membership as Chartered Chemical Engineers (MIChemE) and benefit from mentoring and Get Chartered sessions.

We are looking forward to working with the IChemE and helping to shape the careers of our young engineers.

Briggs of Burton support the International Centre of Brewing and Distilling at Heriot-Watt University

Briggs of Burton were pleased to continue their support for the International Centre of Brewing and Distilling (ICBD) at Heriot- Watt University this week. Scott Davies and Andrew Mieleniewski provided a brewery design workshop to the 2nd Year Brewing and Distilling students. The session involved several team activities to get the students thinking about equipment size and selection as part of a business plan.

Jane White, Associate Professor at the ICBD mentioned “The 2nd year Brewing and Distilling students really appreciated the Briggs team visiting this week and providing such an interesting and active learning experience around designing and engineering a brewery. The students particularly enjoyed the insight and discussions from industry, and the practical brewery layout exercise.”

In addition to the workshop, the ICBD is home to a research brewery designed and built by Briggs of Burton which over the last year had an upgrade in dual-purpose vessel (DPV) capacity to support the growing number of students learning to brew and distil at the Watt.

Briggs of Burton are keen to support the ICBD and looking forward to returning next year, especially if we can share our knowledge and experience to the next generation of brewers and distillers!

Briggs of Burton’s engineering team support STEM Inventor Day at Firfield Primary School in Derbyshire

Briggs of Burton’s engineering team recently supported a STEM Inventor Day at Firfield Primary School to celebrate British Science Week 2019.

Three of our team members; Parm Nanuwan, Thomas Barnett and Jessica Simmons led the day with several engaging STEM activities including Spaghetti Towers and Draw an Inventor. Proudly promoting engineering and helping the students to develop their creative skills.

Briggs team worked with over 350 students from 12 classes across Key Stage 1 and 2. The Briggs team felt the experience was extremely rewarding as they were able to share their passion for engineering.

 

Tom Barnett, Project Manager at Briggs Asia said, “It is the duty of our generation of engineers to inspire the next one, so taking part in the Inventor Day for British Science Week was a great way to promote STEM in schools and have fun at the same time!”

Briggs would like to thank Firfield Primary School for giving us the opportunity to visit. Finally, a big thank you to our talented team who spent their time in supporting the students and their development.
