Recently, our colleagues from the School of Engineering visited Boston College as part of the University of Lincoln’s vision outreach work to promote STEM on Engineering Industry Insight Day.
The learners from Boston College were those enrolled in the general engineering, and motor vehicle engineering courses, including apprentices in levels 2 and 3.
Dr Aliyu Aliyu, Senior Lecturer in Sustainable Energy gave a presentation on our courses at the University of Lincoln, within the School of Engineering, what modules they should expect to take in each year, our research facilities, strong connection to industry and the local council, opportunities to work on industry-led independent and group projects, focus on hands-on activities, and indicative engineering salaries obtainable in the market.
They were afterwards given the opportunity to see and interact with some of the lab equipment we took there. On hand to answer their questions were the Technical Team, as well as three 2nd-4th year student volunteers who spoke to them about their university experiences and campus life.
