Delivered by SUN and the University of Southampton
What do you think of when you hear ‘engineering’? Fixing cars? Wearing overalls? How about designing and launching satellites? Or a human-powered aircraft? Teachers, careers advisers and students are invited to join engineers Dr. Lindsay-Marie Armstrong and (nearly Dr.!) Jess Spurrell from the University of Southampton, as they share their journeys in engineering with you over a cup of tea. Find out just what engineering actually is, how diverse and creative it is, how it opens doors, and some of the many ways through which it can be accessed. Dr. Lindsay-Marie Armstrong is a lecturer in the Energy Technology Group in the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment. She joined the field following a BSc Mathematics degree and has led a number of incentives to support students and staff, particularly women, within engineering resulting in recognition of a national award for the Faculty. Jess Spurrell is writing her thesis in cryogenics and superconductivity (based on work with CERN) whilst managing one of the University’s public engagement projects, Talk to US!
