This month, the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), is calling on young people and their parents to visit Alacrity Foundation in Newport, South Wales which is taking part in its inaugural Engineering Open House Day.

The event will be taking place within our office on Friday 31st July 2015. It will form part of the IET’s Engineer a Better World campaign which aims to showcase the exciting engineering career opportunities in the industry that are open to young people.

The IET is working with venues where engineers play a central role in the day-to-day running of their organisation. With demand for engineers far exceeding supply, and with only 6 percent of them in the UK today being women, the IET is hoping to inspire a new generation of engineers through the Engineering Open House events.

All of the organisations involved will give young people and their parents the chance to explore the variety of stimulating and creative careers in modern engineering by putting on tours, workshops and talks from inspirational engineers. Additionally, guests will have the chance to ask engineers about their career experiences, what they actually do and why the industry appealed to them.
