Insight Into Engineering Programme for Girls
Target Group: Year 13
Aimed at lower sixth form girls from schools and colleges of further education throughout the Province, the GETSET Insight Into Engineering Programme offers students a unique opportunity to experience the world of engineering. This four day course, organised by Sentinus, aims to increase student awareness of the career opportunities within science and engineering and allow them to make informed decisions.
The Insight Programme focuses on girls who are likely to enter engineering at undergraduate level and gives them the opportunity to meet and discuss issues for women in engineering with young role models already working in the field. They also have the opportunity to visit both local universities and have a close look at their chosen discipline of engineering by spending two days on placement with an engineer from a local company.
