Transition Year Student Day at Tandem

We were delighted to welcome a number of Transition Year students to our headquarters in Mahon last Friday 13th April. 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 visit that included a screening of the excellent ‘Dream Big’ film , a documentary that showcases how engineers push the limits of innovation in unexpected and amazing ways. This was followed by presentations from representatives of our engineering departments covering Process, Mechanical, HVAC, Electrical & Instrumentation, and Civil & Structural design. This gave the students a good insight into the diverse nature of engineering design, and the many career opportunities it offers.

One of our Senior Project Managers described how a full life-cycle EPCMV (Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management and Validation) project is initiated and executed, and a timelapse video from a recent project was shown to give the students a flavour of the construction phase.

Finally, our undergraduate work-placement students from University College Cork and the Cork Institute of Technology were on hand to give presentations on their chosen college courses and their experiences in Tandem’s work-placement programme.

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