Engineering Open House Day, Friday 28th July 2017

The University of Huddersfield is inviting local children and their families to visit the School of Computing and Engineering on Friday 28th July 2017 for Engineering Open House Day, to give them an insight into the reality of careers in engineering. Engineering Open House Day is organised by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) to highlight the important role engineers play in everyday life, with participating venues and organisations demonstrating the creativity and diversity of engineering careers. It is designed to be an educational, fun day out to encourage children to choose careers in engineering and technology.

The event will include an opportunity to take part in a VIP ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour of the university’s research areas and engineering facilities. In addition there will a fun-filled trail of hands-on engineering activities for all the family plus a special digital making session from Huddersfield Raspberry Jam. Best of all we will be joined by famous Huddersfield children's author, poet and broadcaster Gez Walsh who will help bring 'New Inventions' ideas to life in a fun and entertaining poetry workshop.

Last year’s Engineering Open House Day comprised 28 separate events up and down the country and had more than 1,600 parents and children attendees. 2017 is set to be bigger and engage even more families. The day is part of a wider campaign, Engineer a Better World, which aims to support parents and young people in finding out more about modern engineering.

With the UK currently experiencing a shortage of engineers – it’s estimated that we need to find nearly 2million new engineers over the next decade – the issue has never been more pressing for the industry. The event at The University of Huddersfield will take place at 10:30am until 3pm on Friday 28th July 2017. To attend, please book via this link:
