About this day
In five 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.
