Getting the chance to go behind the scenes, meet engineers and get stuck into real experiences of work is a great way for young people to discover what their could achieve as an engineer - and the many different ways they can get there. Just this week, @theuniversityofsheffield opened its doors to 350 local Year 9-11 female students for their Exploring STEM for Girls event, where they got the chance to try their hand at different activities and to hear from the uni's Director of Women in Engineering. And in Huddersfield @kirkleescollege gave local school kids the chance to meet engineering employers, apprentices and students to find out about the opportunities the industry has to offer in their area at its 'Engineering your future' event. Head to yearofengineering.gov.uk to find out about more chances to #takeacloserlook at engineering across the UK in 2018 #inspireanengineer#yearofengineering#sheffield#huddersfield#womeninengineering#womeninstem#apprenticeship#furthereducation#careeradvice#inspiration#rolemodels#choices

Pauline is studying for an MA in Financial Mathematics. Orginally from Paris, she says: “I did my undergrad in France, close to Paris, at an engineering school called Centrale Supelec. There’s a joint diploma between my school and UCL. Instead of going back to my school for the last year I decided to come to UCL.”
“I’ve lived in London since September. What I like about UCL is how huge it is! It’s like a campus within the city. You always have loads of students all around and there’s such diversity. I love the fact you can do whatever you want, whenever you want; it’s completely different to France, which is a lot stricter. Here I have more time to study by myself.
“I’d like to start my career in London and eventually move back to Paris. In the industry I work in, finance, it’s moving a lot, and there are lots of opportunities here.” #UCLGlobal 🌍
Come along to our Open Events on 25th (Bishopsfield Rd) and 26th (CEMAST) April for the opportunity to look around our #innovative campuses and find out more about the wide range of full time courses, traineeships and #apprenticeships we have to offer.
Interview day! Next round of interviews for places at Ballyfermot College in September takes place today. Some handy hints for you:
1) Show up on time!
2) Go to the right building - if your interview is in the Main Building then it's the one beside Tesco. If your interview is in the Media Building then that's the one beside the library. For the arts block turn at the roundabout by the church as if you were heading to Chapelizod. The Art building is on the right as you head down.
3) Dress code is smart casual (as seen below!). 4) Know your course - the name, the modules and all that stuff. Makes you look shocking clever.
See you later and best of luck!
Usually you'd find him in the newly branded Pathfinders Skills and Jobs Centre. However tomorrow, our careers guru Michael will be in Hamilton providing career guidance, assistance with applications and interview skills, resume support and course advice.
Open to all, come along to our Hamilton campus between 10am - 3pm to chat to Michael and find your path to success. 👋

An anonymous academic surveyed their students at university across all levels to find out what they were doing well and how to improve in other aspects.
The survey of 1,000 students revealed an underlying question as to why lecturers didn’t show more humanity. Qualities like kindness, integrity and understanding appeared to be missing when lecturers interacted with students.
Though a softer approach can seem like pandering and spoon-feeding, students actually pointed out that an understanding of different experiences, backgrounds and commitments was what they were keen on.
They didn’t want to be treated like a homogenous group.
The anonymous academic explained that sometimes students can be at the receiving end of irritation and contempt, when all they want to be is encouraged and inspired. Pressures that academic staff may face on the business side of working in a university shouldn’t be trickled down into the classroom and affect students.
Other points that students raised included a lack of free printing, better IT systems, better organisation and timetabling of lectures, 24-hour library access, and so on.
What are your thoughts? Do you think academics should incorporate elements of compassion within their teaching? Is there a responsibility to show an understanding to students and inspire them within their educational journey?
Very pleased to have been shortlisted for Building Design’s Young Architect of the Year Award 2018!
We presented a body of work across several sectors, with each project resulting in a crafted solution to a challenging site and project constraints. This included the new Southwark Campus for @lscollege and a mixed use housing / commercial scheme for @londonsquaredevelopments / @toynbeehall that is currently under construction.
The awards have a history of picking Architects that go on to be leading figures within the industry so we are honoured to be in such esteemed company.
