Engineering and computing careers fair success

The Engineering and Computing Careers Fair held at the end of October has been hailed a great success after over 850 students attended.

The 42 employers, who spanned a wide range of engineering and computing areas, offered both placements and graduate opportunities.

There was a very positive buzz at the event and talking to employers and students alike they were very happy with the turnout. Many employers were impressed not only with the quantity of students but with the quality of the students’ approach in that they had prepared and done their research into the companies they wanted to have a dialogue with.

Employers were also pleasantly surprised about the number of first year students who came along, showing that it’s never too early to find out what employers are looking for.
