Engineering Careers FairDate Posted: 10/12/2013 | Posted In: Latest news
As part of the Future Engineers Scheme, the College held its first Engineering Careers Event which was supported by a range of local and national employers, universities and training organisations. The event was an opportunity for students both from the college and local schools to speak to the various organisations to find out about routes into engineering, the very varied job roles as well as the exciting work which is being done in the north-east. It was also an excellent opportunity for students to make links with employers to gain valuable work experience and to find out about future internships and job opportunities.
Darren Ward, a graduate engineer from Johnson Matthey, said:
“It was great to give both students and parents advice and to see so many people interested in engineering. It was also good for us to spread the word about our company which a lot of people haven’t heard of or don’t know about the work work with do – so thank you for the opportunity.”
Liz Bryan, QE’s Future Engineers Co-ordinator said:
“It was great to get such positive feedback from all of the representatives, as well as the event being a success for our students. I think it has definitely given students a much better awareness of how vast an area engineering is and what excellent prospects it offers as a career.”
