Tandem was delighted to host eight students from five schools in Cork including two girls from Ursuline Secondary School in Blackrock, and six boys from Ashton, St. Francis College Rochestown, the Christian Brothers and Carrigaline Community School.
Tandem delivered a full programme of events for the week to engage the students with a variety of engineering disciplines. Disciplines included Process Engineering, Building Service Engineering, Civil / Structural Engineering, BIM, Electrical Engineering and Project Controls.
Presentations to the students included education and career paths to achieve a career in that discipline, definitions and explanations of that discipline and the type of work involved. The students were then given an engineering task related to what they had learned.
Each day students were asked to work on a presentation of what they had learned and what their experience had been, and at the end of the week the students delivered those presentations to Tandem staff.
Tandem is delighted with the feedback from the students and at the end of the week, all felt that they would now consider a career in engineering. A great result, and we will look forward to watching their careers unfold.
