Once arriving, students will be introduced to their host for the session, and be made aware of any health and safety requirements of the building. The structure of the session will firstly cover the intended objectives, and then begin to answer the questions posed by the students. Through these discussions the host would aim to create an understanding of the career path in general, the industry, what their specific role on projects is and address any common misconceptions. Students will also be given the opportunity to take the discussion in different directions as they chose. In addition, we will incorporate activities with interactive and realistic tasks that would be commonly undertaken by a structural engineer.
