Work experience is acknowledged as a real benefit not only to the students, but also to the manufacturing industry. Raising awareness and engaging students at an early age provides engineering insight and also increases options for future career opportunities.
Sadly, very few students will ever have the opportunity to see or experience a large fabrication workshop with heavy manufacturing equipment. At Blackhill Engineering, the students are initially encouraged to look around the workshops, talk to the staff and ask questions that will help them to decide if engineering is the career path for them. We are pleased to report back that most return to the office with a big grin and cannot wait to get started.
All the team at Blackhill Engineering would like to pass on a huge well done and many thanks to Erin Fisher and Alfred Downs for your time, and also for the positive influence you have had on our business in such a short time.
We wish you both the very best for the future.
Paul Fishwick, General Manager.
