“It’s a very exciting time to be working in science, technology, engineering and maths. Not only do we get to make a positive difference to people’s everyday lives through our work, whether providing transport, housing or energy, we have an opportunity to shape a different future where new technology is combined with traditional engineering to push the boundaries further than ever. We hope that by discussing details about the fantastic work our people do and the fascinating projects they work on we can ensure students leave Big Bang North West as enthused about STEM as we all are.” – Atkins Global.
