School pupils from across the north of Scotland found out what a career in engineering is all about when they attended the first Engineering Career Day, organised by the School of Engineering at the University of Aberdeen, in collaboration with the Reach programme. Forty S4/S5 pupils from 10 schools came from as far as Portree on the Isle of Skye and as close as St Machar academy in Aberdeen. The event was well supported by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), Intuition of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and the Electrical & Electronic Engineering (EEE) student society, who ran engaging, hands-on workshops. Current and former engineering students also shared their experiences of student life and the career beyond.
