Wilo, a manufacturer of pumps and pumping systems, has announced that Heriot-Watt University Dubai Campus has recognised the company for its contributions to the Mechanical Engineering department by naming the Fluid Mechanics section of the Mechanical Engineering Laboratory “Wilo Pump Laboratory”. The refurbished laboratory was reportedly unveiled at an event on October 12.

As part of the agreement, Wilo said that it will equip the laboratory with a series of its latest pumps, and also provide a number of internship opportunities as well as give priority to Heriot-Watt University students for any potential entrylevel openings in the company.

“At Wilo, one of our five core values is ‘sustainable and responsible’ and key to this is ensuring that resources are preserved for the future and that our children will have the same opportunities tomorrow that we have today,” said Dr Amer Mokbel, Managing Director at Wilo Middle East.

About the partnership, Dr Mehdi Nazarinia, Assistant Professor in Mechanical Engineering – Fluid Mechanics/Energy, at Heriot-Watt University Dubai Campus said: “This is another example of the University tying up with industry leaders to use cuttingedge technology and equipment to educate and train our students. The agreement will allow the company to impart its expertise to students based in the United Arab Emirates who plan careers in the Mechanical Engineering fields.”
