Electronic engineering undergraduates from across the UK travelled to participate in a residential week packed with professional and personal development sessions and networking with speakers from industry.

Workshop topics included leadership, emotional intelligence, project management, goal setting, lean thinking, effective negotiation and business ethics, all presented by experts in their fields.

The scholars went on fantastic site visits to the Nissan Sunderland Plant and Siemens plc, and enjoyed a formal dinner with exhibition entry at the Centre for Life. Divided into teams, scholars also undertook work-based projects across the week and presented their solutions to a panel of industry judges on the final morning.

Thank you to all the facilitators and speakers who contributed to the week, and to our scholars for making the UKESF Summer Workshop 2015 so rewarding.
