A graduate role is your opportunity to kick start your career and begin shaping your future in the world of engineering and manufacturing.

If you’re a recent graduate, professional registration will be an important next step on your career ladder. The first stage in becoming registered is to join a professional engineering institution.

Headstart – Engineering University Taster Programmes
Headstart is a taster programme ran by EDT for Year 12 students who are studying science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects and are potentially thinking about university but may need more support to help make their decision.

The residential courses take place at some of the top universities in the country and are designed to give an introduction to many different aspects of engineering and the career opportunities a degree course might offer.

There is an attendance fee to cover your tuition, food and accommodation costs.
For more information, visit the Headstart website.
