Solihull College Digital Innov8ors Visit adi Group
adi Group divisions are working with Digital Innovators at Solihull College as part of the adi Group’s ongoing commitment to supporting local colleges across a wide range of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) initiatives.
Two student teams came to the Group’s head office facilities in Kings Norton to present the latest progress on their Digital Innov8or course projects including ‘The Classroom of the Future’ – looking at emerging tools and technology for education – and ‘Developing a Guidebot for the Blind’ – using robot technologies to assist the visually impaired.
The cohort of students presented ideas on both topics to adi Digital (the Group’s specialist digital, IT and telecommunications division) and adi Automation (the Group’s industrial automation and control solutions division) before having a chance to view adi Group facilities and the panel shop in action to learn more about how adi Group is implementing digital technologies and industry 4.0 concepts into client projects.
Vic Brashko, Managing Director of adi Digital said of the visit, “It was fantastic to have the Digital Innov8ors at adi Head Office. We have been doing a few projects with the students ranging from mentoring and interviewing skills through to supporting students on the Global Conrad Challenge to present their vision of the “Classroom Of The Future” so it was great for them to come and see what we do here at adi Group and how digital skills they are learning can be transferred into the workplace. We look forward to supporting the students on future projects.”
