The Faculty of Engineering, in partnership with the Weir Group are delighted to offer the Young WEIR-WISE: Discovering Engineering with S2 Girls programme which is designed to inspire young female students to discover the excitement and personal satisfaction behind a career in engineering.
The programme takes place at the University in January each year with a total of 100 places available, all of which are fully-funded by the Weir Group.
The programme runs twice, with 50 girls attending the first 2-day session and 50 attending the second. Both sessions run in January and are designed to support the pupils in gaining an understanding of what it’s like to study and work in the field of engineering through participation in team-based challenges, all whilst building relationships with like-minded pupils from other schools,
As a non-residential programme, participants must be available to travel to and from the University of Strathclyde campus in Glasgow City Centre each day. A contribution towards travel costs will be provided and lunch will also be provided each day.
