Engineering Our Future: Civil Engineering and Infrastructure

Date: Tuesday, 25 March 2014

Venue: Anglia Ruskin University (Ashcroft Building)  |  City: Chelmsford, United Kingdom

CSES is pleased to announce that it will be holding its 8th biannual Engineering Our Future event, this time based on the theme of Civil Engineering and Infrastructure. The event will follow the normal agenda of exhibitions throughout the evening supported by local technology companies, Anglia Ruskin University, and organisations such as STEMNET and Essex County Council. During the evening there will be approximately five short and snappy lectures given by local engineers, scientists and others practising in the field of aerospace.

As ever the event is aimed at developing awareness of STEM subjects, careers and opportunities that are available both locally and nationally. Therefore this event is mainly suited to year 10 to 13 students who want to learn more about the subject area. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions to graduate and experienced engineers and scientists on school subjects, degrees and apprenticeships, future careers and whatever else may be puzzling you.

We look forward to seeing you there!
