4-8 November 2019
This week is Tomorrow’s Engineers Week. Now in its seventh year, it provides a unique opportunity for engineers, employers, universities and schools to showcase how engineers working in all sectors are on a mission to make the world a better place.
There are a number of ways to get involved:
1) Attend ‘The Big Assembly’ Video Stream – Wednesday 6 November
‘The Big Assembly’ live video stream, which starts at 10:30am on Wednesday 6 November 2019, will feature a panel of inspirational engineers who will talk to students about their careers.
Hosted by Fayon Dixon the panel this year is:
Yewande Akinola: an engineer on a mission to design and construct buildings in our built environment
Bryn Noble: an engineer on a mission to protect the environment
Mat Murgatroyd: an engineer on a mission to improve mobility of patients with knee issues
