The Young Engineer Programme (Hong Kong)

Sunday 11th November 2018 - 15-18 year old students

(see tabs above to learn more about the timetable of each day)

  • The world’s greatest leaps in technology have been powered by a team of talented engineers. That is why engineering remains one of the most prestigious and rewarding careers that any student can pursue, and also why the best engineering jobs remain highly-competitive. Such popularity makes work experience hard to secure. 

    The Young Engineer Programme brings leading international engineers from the most desirable sectors - including electric vehicle design, aeronautical engineering, and software app engineering - to Hong Kong to provide you with everything you would seek to gain from work experience in this profession.

    Programme Benefits

    There are three clear outcomes for the day:

    • You will gain a genuine experience of life as an engineer in various disciplines, and develop ‘the engineering mindset’; a critical trait that distinguishes the most-accomplished engineers from the rest;
    • You will be guided in how to get a high-flying job in engineering– with advice including: which A-levels/higher qualifications to choose; which universities to apply for; how to tackle personal statements; and how to excel in CVs, application forms and interviews.
    • You will meet with exceptional engineers from a variety of backgrounds, and be given the chance to ask them questions on a personal basis. These professionals can become vital mentors for you throughout your career.

    Boost Your Applications

    Further, you can reference your attendance on the Young Engineer Programme in your UCAS and general university personal statement as an example of where you gained key skills such as teamwork, critical-thinking, commercial awareness and innovative creativity.

    The InvestIN Commitment

    After the programme, InvestIN continues to act as a platform for you to build a successful career upon. Our alumni have unlimited lifetime access to our depth of expertise; students can contact us with further questions at any time, and we make sure you are promptly given the advice you need.

InvestIN's Young Lawyer Programme is the best experience in law I have had to date! Excellent organisation; the team was so welcoming. I've gained lots of material to look over and met lots of professionals who have given me valuable advice and support! Well worth attending if you have an interest in pursuing a career in law.

Ace Edge ★★★★★

I attended the Young Engineer Programme and it was so awesome as I gained an experience that was challenging and productive. As well as, I made friends that have both similar and different interests from me and at times where I had absolutely no clue how to approach a question (partially because I was one of the younger years attending), there were people, both experienced professionals and other students willing to give their input and help where needed. 

Lewis Thornton ★★★★★

My experience at the Young Lawyer Programme was incredible, I gained so much information regarding both the role of solicitors and barristers. I would recommend this event to anyone who plans to study law and/or pursue it as a career.

Gaurav Samnani ★★★★★

The Young Investment Banker Programme: Incredible experience - never would have been able to work with so many investment bankers and put on my UCAS otherwise!

Manpreet Kaur ★★★★★

I attended the Young Doctor Programme and honestly it will always be one of the best experiences of my life. I gained valuable knowledge from Doctors from a range of specialities as well as a very fun session on suturing. Ultimately, you stay in contact with the professional team so they are able to answer all questions you may have long term which is so rewarding and useful.
