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 engineers from the most desirable sectors - including electric vehicle design, aeronautical engineering, and software app engineering - to the University of Manchester to provide you with everything you would seek to gain from work experience in this profession.
There are three clear outcomes for the day:
Boost Your Applications
Further, you can reference your attendance on the Young Engineer Programme in your UCAS personal statement as an example of where you gained key skills such as teamwork, critical-thinking, commercial awareness and innovative creativity.
