Renishaw looks to the next generation of engineers

Renishaw is hosting an online session to encourage more students to pursue engineering as a career.

The precision engineering firm, based near Wotton-under-Edge, is hosting the webinar as part of This Is Engineering Day on November 4.

The hour-long event, which starts at 6pm, will will give students and their parents the opportunity to find out more about the opportunities in science, technology, engineering and maths careers, hear from some of Renishaw's younger engineers about their career journey and have the opportunity to ask questions.

The theme of this year's This is Engineering Day is #BeTheDifference and the webinar, aimed for students in Year 10 and above, will focus on changing perceptions of engineering as a career and show how STEM careers can make a real difference in society.

Attendees will hear about life-changing projects Renishaw engineers have worked on, such as the manufacture of ventilators for the NHS to help Covid-19 patients and a drug delivery system to treat Parkinson's disease.

Renishaw education outreach officer Rebecca Bound said: "The current restrictions mean that we can't visit many schools in person, but we still want to engage with students as much as possible.

"The webinar is an opportunity to show students the diverse opportunities in the sector.

"Showing real world examples of how engineers make a difference in the world we live in gives students a real insight into how engineering can be an exciting and rewarding career."
