Do you think about the consequences of your actions when at work?

Well, on Thursday 8th September at the IOG Saltex exhibition Alex Vickers, Course Director for the MSc in Sports Surface Technology, at Cranfield University will be hosting a 20 minute talk in the virtual arena on 'Making sure we think before we act'

When implementing an operation that is part of a complex process, particularly with regard to sports surfaces, there can often be unforeseen consequences if the implications of our actions are not thought through properly. For example, Alex will be looking at the possible consequences of aeration, such as reducing surface traction and hardness, an implication which is often overlooked.

As well as their research capabilities in the sports surface industry, Cranfield will also be promoting their MSc in Sports Surface Technology on stand EH13. As sports surfaces become ever more complex there is a need for managers of sports facilities with a range of technical, engineering, and managerial skills increases, and the growing importance of the pitch opens up new opportunities in the areas of sports technology and science.

Recent graduate Stephen Prinn says of the course, "[It is] exciting, challenging and daunting all at the same time. The way the practical aspects of the course underpins the technical is great and it allows you to see and test the theory. One of the real strengths of the course is the tutors, and the other students, all these guys are at the top of their game, who wouldn't want to learn from them!"

Cranfield University's Silsoe campus is the hub of the university's environmental and life sciences activity. For more information about the Sports Surface Technology MSc visit www.silsoe.cranfield.ac.uk/ccss/ or for information about Cranfield visit www.cranfield.ac.uk

Cranfield will be exhibiting on stand EH13 at the IOG Saltex exhibition. For further information please contact Inga Wells, Marketing Manager NSRI, T: 01525 863321 E: i.wells@cranfield.ac.uk
