 WOMEN INTO ENGINEERING 7th November 2018 5-7pm @University of Derby

Progress to Technology

Open to female students from Y7-Y13 can attend the Women into Engineering event on the 7th November with parents/carers and will need to book on using the link on the flier.


The project is a pilot and is a collaboration between the University of Derby, Bombardier, Rolls Royce, Derby College and Derby Manufacturing University Technical College (DMUTC) to offer a programme of activities (twilight sessions and half term events) that give students the opportunity to try out various fields within engineering and technology, use specialist facilities and meet people who share their interests. Students will also get the chance to meet experts who are teaching and working in engineering and technology roles across the city.

 By taking part in the programme, students will be the first to hear about any opportunities or events the partners are delivering and will build experience for future university and job applications. It is open to learners from Y7-Y13.
