This week of work experience is for any students in 12 interested in developing their understanding of opportunities in the engineering sector, to help inform career decision-making. Engineering Awareness Week is in its 11th year in Leeds office and is now also running in Manchester and Sheffield.
The week is designed to give students an insight into the sector and support career decision-making. Students will work with colleagues from various departments at Arup, and will also work in teams to complete an engineering-based project which they will present on at the end of the week. The following video helps to give an insight into what is involved: https://youtu.be/GN5qJeE_WpU
The experience receives fantastic feedback from participants, with a small number of past participants progressing to apprenticeships with the business after education (see attached for example case study).
