Higher education. New engineering Scholarship.

Whilst the CLAAS Apprenticeship scheme and ongoing training meet the immediate service needs of farmers today, CLAAS recognise that it is also important to develop the skills needed to design and develop the machinery of tomorrow. The CLAAS Group currently has engineering centres in America, Russia, India, Hungary, France and Germany and as a manufacturer developing new machinery for a World-wide market, Helmut Claas has recognised the need to encourage a wider spread of international engineers, especially in the area of field testing.

In seeking to establish a more diverse international community of young engineers who speak a universal language, such as English, Helmut Claas has been instrumental in the establishment of the new CLAAS Scholarship for first year Agricultural Engineering degree course students at Harper Adams University College, which is the only UK University to offer an agricultural engineering degree with honours. Over each of the next three years, the CLAAS Group will award one CLAAS Scholarship to a first year Engineering student studying.

Agricultural Engineering or Agricultural Engineering Marketing & Management at Harper Adams University College. The first CLAAS Scholarship has been awarded to John Butterly, whose family farm near Drogheda in Ireland. John is in his first year and is studying for a B.Eng. Hons. degree in Agricultural Engineering. The Scholarship covers the successful student’s fees for the whole of their four-year degree at Harper Adams, where it is also expected that the CLAAS Scholar will work as an ambassador for the company. During that time they will also be offered a summer placement with CLAAS UK, and a one-year sandwich placement at the CLAAS Group headquarters at Harsewinkel. On completion of their degree, the successful Scholar will be offered a position with either the CLAAS Group or CLAAS UK. With demand for engineers currently exceeding the number of graduates, the past five years have seen numbers enrolling for the engineering degree courses at HAUC rise by around 10% per annum. In selecting a Scholar, CLAAS not only took into consideration the applicant’s academic background, but also their character, skills and enthusiasm for agricultural engineering.
