Young WEIR-WISE - Discovering Engineering with S2 Girls

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.

We are delighted to be offering the Young WEIR-WISE programme for female school pupils in S2 in person again after two years hosting the programme virtually. The programme has been expanded for 2023, giving 150 girls the opportunity to take part.

The programme will be taking place on Monday 23 – Tuesday 24 January 2023 and Thursday 26 and Friday 27 January 2023. 75 girls will be invited to attend from 23-24 January 2023 and a second group of 75 girls will be invited to attend from 26-27 January 2023.

Participants will spend two days on the University of Strathclyde campus and will hear from staff at the University and colleagues from the Weir Group who will provide an insight into studying and working in the field of engineering. They will also partake in a number of practical activities run by University of Strathclyde staff and engineers.
