BY INVITATION ONLY

In partnership with EDT Headstart, the Royal Academy of Engineering will be holding a Freshers’ Fayre for students who are enrolling on engineering degree courses in the UK over the next couple of months.  The event will give students a chance to meet potential future employers and make connections with Professional Engineering Institutions (PEIs) and other organisations who can support them throughout their studies.

The students will attend workshops on studying engineering, work experience and engineering careers, as well as hearing about graduate schemes, bursaries, and the support available throughout their studies, and the start of their careers.

Finally, the event is an opportunity for the students to network with others at the start of their journey to a career in the same industry.
