The funding, provided by Reading-based technology company, Farmex, will contribute to her study costs. In July she will join the business in a placement position, as trainee process control engineer – giving her valuable practical experience. There she will be involved in everything from printed circuit board assembly to system specification for existing and new-generation Dicam control units.

Already a recipient of a Douglas Bomford Trust engineering-based scholarship at Harper Adams, Anita is currently studying for a BEng in mechanical engineering.

“We are putting a lot of effort into encouraging young people into the industry and it is really good news that this engineer has recognised the importance of process control and the use of data in this sector,” said Hugh Crabtree, managing director of Farmex and chairman of steering group for the industry’s scholarship programme.

Farmex both manufactures and markets advanced environmental control equipment which can monitor many key functions in pig and poultry buildings and crop stores, enabling farmers to check remotely and analyse their performance. Internationally recognised, it has developed markets in Europe and North America.
