As part of Engineer’s Week 2022, Tandem donated a ‘Curiosity Box’ to the 3rd class in a local school. The Curiosity Box is an award-winning science and engineering toolkit designed to nurture children’s’ passion for discovery, experimentation, and exploration. Students completed practical experiments in engineering, maths, and chemistry. The main aim of Engineers Week is to promote engineering as a profession of choice to children in Ireland.
Tandem also donated virtual reality viewers to the 6th class pupils. Developed for the Science Museum, the Virtual Reality Goggles Wonderlab® turn almost any mobile phone into a virtual reality viewer. The VR viewers can help students understand the nature of light as part of the National Curriculum for Science.
As part of our CSR Programme, Tandem’s Engineers participated in Engineers Week during Feb 27th – March 5th by hosting a series of virtual visits to transition year students in Cork. Engineers Week promotes the importance of engineering as a profession and aims to positively showcase engineering as a rewarding and creative career choice. Five engineers from Tandem gave presentations across the following disciplines: Electrical, CSA, Building Services and Process & Chemical Engineering.
Under normal circumstances Tandem would facilitate a week-long learning experience for transition year students at its headquarters. This year, our engineers delivered an overview of engineering as a career and their own career path to date. The presentations included their second and third level education journey, a description of the type of work & industries that their engineering discipline is typically involved in, their day-to-day activities in their engineering work and their career aspirations.
As part of our CSR Programme, Tandem Project Management Ltd.’s engineers volunteered for the Engineers Ireland Engineers Week. Engineers Week promotes engineering and the importance of the profession to children in Ireland, and its aim is to positively showcase engineering as a rewarding and creative career choice to children in all communities.
Our engineers visited participating schools in Cork during the week 29th Feb – 06th March. The visit included a presentation from the engineers on engineering as a career. After the presentations, it was time for fun and learning with games designed by Engineers Ireland to open the students minds to engineering in their local environment and to the processes involved in a design and build project. The level of engagement from the students was enlightening.
We look forward to visiting many more schools in the future and introducing them to the exciting world of Engineering.
Tandem Project Management was delighted to sponsor and participate in the University College Cork Engineering Society Engineering Summit.
The Engineering Summit is an annual event run by the society that features and number of guest speakers discussing all things engineering. The speakers on the night were Professor Patrick O’Shea, UCC President, Professor Liam Marnane, Head of School of Engineering at UCC, Ronan Murphy, Smart Networks Specialist at EBS, Dermot O’Sullivan, UCC Lecturer and Tim Mulhall, Managing Director of Tandem Project Management. They discussed their careers to date and also gave some advice to undergraduate and graduate Engineers.
The Engineering Summit coincided with Engineers Week which brings the fascinating world of engineering to life in communities nationwide, inspiring children and young adults to engineer the Ireland of tomorrow.
The UCC Engineering Society is an academic and social society for engineering students in UCC. Throughout the year they run a number of events from career focused talks to social events and nights out. They also visit local secondary schools to run workshops and talk about careers in engineering. This year, with over 600 registered members they have already run several successful events including a Mental Health Conference, a career networking event and their Annual Society Ball. The Engineering Society’s Chairperson Eimear Duggan was a recent participant in Tandem’s Undergraduate Programme.
