Renishaw Competition to encourage students take up a career in engineering
UK - Renishaw and Young Engineers, an organisation devoted to encouraging careers in engineering, are for the third consecutive year running a competition that will enable six young people to experience a unique week-long insight into engineering-based organisations.
The Renishaw Engineering Experience, which is open to Year 12 UK students (aged 16-17), will take place from 6 to 10 July 2015 and is a fully subsidised, 5 day package of activities which aims to encourage a career in engineering.
In 2014 the six winning students of the competition were given behind-the-scenes tours of eight big name engineering organisations, including BAE Systems, Airbus and Jaguar Land Rover, culminating with a tour and measurement challenge at Renishaw's New Mills headquarters in Gloucestershire.
Rod Edwards, Chief of Executive of Young Engineers, explains, “We are delighted to again partner with Renishaw on this exciting initiative. Last year's winners had a fantastic time, experiencing everything from aerospace to automotive and different types of engineering. They saw nanotechnology and massive bits of civil engineering, and had a lot of fun. It was very inspiring for them.”
