Public engagement

Students generate public awareness of Communications and the research taking place within the Centre by running workshops in schools, hosting visits to the labs, participating in Engineering and Science Fairs, acting as STEM ambassadors, longer term projects with local schools and producing short films explaining their research.

Engineers contribute to the greatest advances in our society. It is all about inventing, designing and problem solving. Engineering is a perfect career choice - highly rewarding, with excellent prospects, and offering the potential to engage in projects that can change the world. From my experience, women excel in creativity, project planning, motivating the team and providing an alternate approach to problem solving which is crucial in Engineering. We need to inspire school girls to consider engineering as a career.
