This series of one-day career events has been established to provide an opportunity for attendees to see that engineering is a career worth pursuing, and help them make an informed choice.

It is jointly coordinated and sponsored by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Institution of Civil Engineers, the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the Institution of Chemical Engineers, The Nuclear Institute and the British Computer Society, and is fully supported by STEMNET and the Northwest STEM Centres.

Who should attend?

This informative and hands-on event is ideally aimed at students between 17-18 years old who are studying science, maths or engineering at GNVQ or A-Level, together with their STEM subject teachers.

What happens on the day?

The day is split into 5 sessions providing insights into Mechanical, Civil, Electrical/Electronic, Chemical and Nuclear Engineering; each of which lasts approximately 40 minutes. Attendees will be split into five groups and each group allocated a mentor Engineer for the day.

They will learn about the specific areas of engineering from the companies and organisations invited, along with a lunchtime marketplace offering more information on ‘Routes into Engineering’. The sessions are designed to be practical and interactive and provide an insight into life as a professional Engineer or Technician.

There will also be a separate STEM teacher session to outline the various routes into the engineering profession, the extensive resources available from the Professional Engineering Institutions & Societies, and the role of STEM Ambassadors in enthusing students of all ages. This has also been extremely well received.
