Engineering Education Scheme targets year 12 students

Year 12 students considering further studies and a career in STEM subjects are being offered the opportunity of working alongside professional scientists and engineers to solve real-life problems in industry.

The Engineering Education Scheme (EES) is a six-month Engineering Development Trust (EDT) programme that links teams of four-to-six year 12 students and their teachers with local companies, where they work on real scientific or engineering projects.

A professional engineer from the company works with the students and their teacher on a real industrial problem to which the company needs a solution.

During the six months, students are encouraged to show industrial enterprise, creativity and innovation while gaining experience of problem-solving, team-work and project management.

In the South East, EES is co-ordinated by STEM Sussex, the STEM outreach department of the University of Brighton, who organise a two-day residential workshop at the university as part of the six-month programme.
