Graduate engineer wins Mentor30Engineers competition

Alumnus James Rogers has been named a winner of the Mentor30Engineers competition.

The competition was launched to celebrate 30 years of the Sainsbury Management Fellows Scholarship Scheme. Judges were looking for engineers across the UK who would like to be mentored by a Sainsbury Management Fellow over three years of their early career or university studies.

James graduated from Loughborough in 2016 in MEng Mechanical Engineering, and now works as a Stress Engineer at Rolls-Royce.

His mentor from the competition is alumnus Rob Gill, who graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering in 1986. Rob has 30 years of experience in the energy, petrochemical and manufacturing industries.

Four current Loughborough students were also named as winners, and included Fejiro Amam, Leah Edwards, Matt Parkes (MEng Mechanical Engineering) and Daniella Franklin (MEng Product Design Engineering).

The Loughborough family made up five of the overall 14 winners of the competition.

The engineers were required to write an essay about an inspirational and bold new idea that could solve problems in society, focusing on key areas including the environment, healthcare, financial planning and social care.
