Students from ALL faculties are welcome - you don't need to be an engineering student as there are a diverse range of roles on offer in the industry. Last year’s transportation careers evening attracted approximately 200 students from a range of backgrounds including economics, geography, architecture, law, arts, and sciences, in addition to engineering.


Speakers from a broad range of backgrounds will talk about their transport careers, so you can learn about the possibilities. Make the most of the opportunity to meet and chat to employers over free food and drinks. Employers may be looking to recruit for part-time work or summer internships.
