Meet the Engineer 11 September 10.00
Education Scotland is working in partnership with Primary Engineers to allow you to hear from a range of people involved in and around engineering. After you have heard a bit about what they do, for example, why they chose engineering, how they got to where they are, you will have the opportunity to ask them your own questions and gain a better understanding of their role. In this session you will meet Craig Goldie – Director Sweitelsky. His job is running Swietelsky’s work in Britain and Australia which means he spends a lot of time travelling around the world meeting new people taking on new engineering challenges.
