Transition Year Students Visit Tandem

We were delighted to welcome a number of Transition Year students to our headquarters in February. The purpose of the visit was to give the students an insight into engineering as a potential career option.

We had a packed agenda for the week which included presentations from representatives of our engineering departments covering Process, Mechanical, CSA, Electrical, Project Management, Project Controls and Revit/3D design. These presentations gave the students a good insight into the diverse nature of engineering design, and the many career opportunities it offers. On Friday each of the students gave a presentation on everything that they had learned during the week.

All-in-all it was a great week for everyone involved. We hope the students enjoyed their experience and are inspired to pursue a future career in engineering with Tandem Project Management Ltd.
