We were delighted to host 80 secondary school students from Acklam Grange, Rye Hills, Outwood Acklam and UCA to celebrate tomorrow’s engineer week!
Students were invited to Middlesbrough College to take part in a range of STEM related engineering and construction workshops, giving them a taste of the careers available in industry.
As a STEM Specialist College, we are proud to offer a range of engineering and construction courses, including T Level programmes where students can benefit from a 45-day work placement out in industry.
We offer all our engineering students the opportunity to study in our £20m STEM Engineering Centre. This unique and inspirational space allows students to learn new skills in a simulated industrial site. Construction students can also build new skills in our new Construction Workshop, which is designed to support students to careers in the construction sector.
As part of the event, students had the chance to explore and use the College’s industry-standard facilities and enjoy hands-on workshops. Workshops were hosted by Middlesbrough College’s experienced staff who all have recent industry experience, these included civil engineering, surveying and planning, welding, motor vehicle, electrical engineering, mechanical rocket building, plumbing and joinery.
A&N Safety Consultants and SeAH Wind were also in attendance for the day and provided insightful talks about the sectors, inspiring students, and answering any questions they had about the roles and careers involved.
A huge thank you to A&N Safety Consults, SeAH Wind and all the staff at Middlesbrough College who supported our tomorrow’s engineer week event! We hope the students who attended enjoyed the event and feel inspired to take on a career in the sectors.
