SAN ANTONIO – Port San Antonio is home to several game-changing companies and one of them, Intertek, is currently utilizing a team of University of Texas at San Antonio students to stay at the forefront of their industry.
Intertek regularly tests emission on every day pieces of equipment and Diesel engines.
Now, a team of University of Texas at San Antonio students, is helping in that endeavor.
“I love technology, things like this excite me a lot,” Raj Patel, project manager said.
Raj Patel is a member of the The R2D2 Visionaries team, a group of UTSA students who helped develop a new system of testing exhaust emissions.
“Teaming Up with UTSA has enabled us to fulfill some of the obligations that we have in house, to try and move the needle forward,” Steve Griffin, manager Intertek Carnot Emission Services said.
Intertek is a globally-renowned name in emissions testing, as the company is a go-to authority that engine technology developers, manufacturers and other industries rely on to make sure their engines meet certain requirements.
The collaboration is a first for Intertek — and it seems to be working well.
