Graeme Groom – Shell Step 2008 entry

This year RDVS decided to take their first student for a summer placement.

The placement scheme was organised by Shell Step (, and paired RDVS with Graeme Groom, a third-year student from the University of Southampton studying for an MEng in Electronic Engineering.

Graeme worked on a number of projects for RDVS, and presented one of them to the Local Shell Step organisation at the end of the two-month placement.

This presentation was good enough to take him forward to the Regional final in London, where he just missed out on a trip to the National final.

Graeme has subsequently been offered a full-time job when he graduates in 2009.
