GEEP is the Academy’s award-winning programme to increase the transition of engineering graduates from diverse backgrounds into engineering employment.

A collaborative employer programme, GEEP targets engineering undergraduates who are female or from socially disadvantaged or ethnic minority backgrounds with a focus on universities outside the Russell Group. The programme provides students with the opportunity to engage with employers through a series of events and networking opportunities with a view to encouraging them to apply for engineering employment opportunities.
