Meet an Engineer: Online Interviews

Meet an Engineer: Online Interviews

What question would you ask an engineer?

A large part of the ‘If you were an engineer, what would you do?’ is interviewing engineers and enabling learners to ask the questions that matter to them. These interviews provide an opportunity for engineers to share how they use creative problem solving in their work and inspire the pupils to find their own engineering ideas.  

You can find videos of our previous engineer interviews on our YouTube channel 

How do we interview an engineer?

We will be running a selection of live webinars with amazing individuals from across the engineering industry. To access these interviews, please register for the competition then log into the resources area to find the link to access the interviews.

What if my school isn’t available to join the live interview at that time?

All of the interviews will be recorded and uploaded on our YouTube channel so you can watch at a time that suits. We have a fantastic collection of past interviews on this channel so please make use of these as your alternative engineer engagement.

How will I know if that interview is suitable for my class?

We ask all engineering professionals to provide a quote beforehand so you have an idea of what the interview topic will be.

Can I join multiple interviews?

You only need to attend one interview, however if you wanted you could attend multiple. Remember, the sooner you have your engineer engagement, complete your entries in class and send them to us, the sooner we can get engineers to grade them.

My class has watched an online interview, what next?

This interview should have inspired your pupils to come up with their own engineering ideas and complete their entries in class. If you have any questions or need any support, please drop us an email.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN ANY OF THESE INTERVIEWS LIVE THEN PLEASE RSVP ON THE RESOURCE AREA.
