What is Engineering Your Future?
Now in its 17th year in London and its 11th year here in the North West, Engineering Your Future has become a key date in the diary of North West Secondary Schools and Sixth Form Colleges. 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.
Engineering Your Future 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 us here at All About STEM
Who should attend?
This informative and hands-on event is ideally aimed at 16-18 year old students who are studying science, maths or engineering at GNVQ or A-Level, to attend together with their STEM subject teachers.
What happens on the day?
The day is split into 5 workshop sessions providing insights into areas such as Mechanical, Civil, Electrical/Electronic, Chemical or Nuclear Engineering; each of which lasts approximately 40 minutes. Attendees will be split into groups and each group allocated a mentor Engineer for the day.
They will learn about different areas & aspects of engineering from the companies and organisations invited, along with a marketplace session offering more information on ‘Routes into Engineering’. The workshop sessions are designed to be practical and interactive and provide an insight into life as a professional Engineer or Technician.
There will also be opportunity for teachers to chat & network with All About STEM staff regarding our work with schools, teachers and business.
The event runs from 9am to 3pm.
Benefits of Attendance
Students and teachers will benefit by increasing their awareness of the very broad scope offered by a career in engineering; the various routes into engineering; what they can expect and what it entails. All the presenters will be qualified and experienced Engineers and Technicians.
If you have any further questions please just get in touch we look forward to seeing you all there on the day!
