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.
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.
