The CLAAS Group has announced that Harper Adams student Jonathan Bradbeer is the winner of its fourth Scholarship for Agricultural Engineering.
Jonathan Bradbeer (centre), who originates from Stroud in Gloucestershire, has been awarded the 2009 CLAAS Scholarship for Agricultural Engineering. Congratulating Jonathan is Alastair Tulloch (Head of After Sales, CLAAS UK) with Richard Langley (far right, Industrial Liaison Manager at HAUC); Jane Broomhall (near right CLAAS UK Group Personnel Manager) and Beate Kral (left, Human Resources/Management Development, CLAAS Group, Germany).
Jonathan Bradbeer originates from Stroud in Gloucestershire and is in his second year at Harper Adams University College (HAUC) where he is studying MEng (Hons) Agricultural Engineering.
As the winner of the CLAAS Scholarship Jonathan’s fees for the second and fourth years of his studies will be covered, whilst in year three he will complete a 1-year sandwich placement at the CLAAS Group headquarters at Harsewinkel, Germany. As part of the Scholarship, Jonathan will also be offered a summer placement with CLAAS UK.
In selecting Jonathan as its latest Scholar, CLAAS not only took into consideration his academic background, but also his character, skills and enthusiasm for agricultural engineering.
Launched in 2005 at the personal instigation of Helmut Claas, the CLAAS Scholarship is open to one second year student per year who is studying on either the MEng/BEng (Hons) or BSc (Hons) Agricultural Engineering, or the BSc (Hons) Agricultural Engineering Marketing and Management courses at Harper Adams.
As a family owned company, CLAAS see the training and education of young engineers as essential to the lifeblood of the agricultural engineering industry as a whole. By the fact that the Scholarship is specific to HAUC, CLAAS recognises the leading role that the College plays in British and European agricultural engineering education.
Demand for engineers currently exceeds the number of graduates and in recent years the numbers enrolling for the engineering degree courses at HAUC has risen by around 10% per annum
The CLAAS Group currently has engineering centres in America, India, Hungary, Russia, France and Germany. In seeking to establish a more diverse international community of young engineers, Dr Claas has recognised the need to encourage a wider spread of international engineers, especially in the area of field-testing. But with engineering centres around the World, it is also important that the teams are able to communicate using a universal language such as English.
