About this day

In three highly interactive sessions our team of engineers will explore different types of engineering including civil, structural, mechanical and more.  Each session also includes a Q&A session to quiz the engineers.  Our aim is to encourage the uptake of Engineering at the highest level and instil curiosity in all.  The day will be brought together with a unique opportunity to ‘Ask an Engineer’.
