Pupils aged 15-17 from the Clyde Gateway area are celebrating their graduation from a programme designed to introduce them to a career in the built environment industry.
Budding engineers from St Mungo’s Academy, Eastbank Academy, Trinity High and Stonelaw Academy took part in the ten-week Get Into Engineering programme, run in collaboration between Clyde Gateway, Robertson Group, Glasgow Kelvin College and the University of the West of Scotland (UWS).
Now in its fifth year, the programme included training on Computer Aided Design (CAD), where the students created and 3D printed wheels before fitting them on foam rocket cars and putting them to the test at Glasgow Kelvin College – reaching speeds of 50mph.
The students also experienced life in a live work environment when they enjoyed two visits to Robertson Central West’s Red Tree development in Shawfield – part of Glasgow’s new satellite business district – receiving a tour of the site before taking part in civil engineering activities led by the team.
The students also visited the UWS campus in Paisley, taking a tour of the engineering facilities and the labs.
