We asked Andrew to tell us about winning I’m an Engineer, and here is what he said…
The whole experience has been fantastic, I really enjoy engaging with you and answering your engineering/technology questions! I had exactly the same viewpoint when I started my career in engineering (when I picked GCSE Engineering in secondary school!)
As you may know being the winner, I have been awarded £500. With this money I am going to create some practical examples of what engineering ‘is’ in the different areas such as programming/software, electrical, chemical, structural, mechanical engineering etc. then take them into schools.
I am doing this as I knew I was interested in engineering but didn’t know what all of the different sectors did and wished someone could have shown me practically, so I could see what interests me the most!
Again thank you very, very much and I hope that I get to call into your school/college to show you how fun engineering and technology can be!
