Following six awards made last year, a further three students of Mechanical Engineering in the School of Engineering and Design are the latest recipients of bursaries from Crown Packaging UK plc. Crown Packaging began in 1892 when founder William Painter invented a better way to package soft drinks and beer with a crimped metal top (or crown). Today, Crown Holdings, Inc. employs more than 50 Brunel Mech Eng Graduates and has research centres in Wantage, Oxfordshire and Chicago, Illinois that support its 139 plants located in 41 countries with a turnover in excess of $8 billion.
