On Monday 21st January 2019, Chemical engineer, Nkechi Anasoh and Chartered Civil Engineer, Navdeep Dhillon spoke about engineering, STEM subjects and the exciting prospects ahead for students!
To build interest within Engineering and create industry links, Mr Ejaz invited two Engineers from industry to give a 1-hour lecture on their personal experience, from studying one of the Design & Technology subjects towards their current vocation, as esteemed professionals.
The dual objectives of the lecture were to provide an invaluable insight into the world of work, and to support students in thinking about the skills and strengths they are developing across their KS4 choices and how they connect to a career in Engineering. The session focused most explicitly on the transferable skills students can develop from both the subjects they are studying at Key Stage 4, and their option choices. Both Engineers provided invaluable insight and explained in depth how their own skills and experiences are connected to what they have done at school.
Nkechi Emmanuella Anasoh is a Chemical Engineer who has a BSc in Chemical Engineering and an MSc in Petroleum Engineering. She has been working within industry for the past 5 years and is currently working with Shell. Navdeep Dhillon is a Chartered Civil Engineer and has a Bsc in Civil Engineering.
