After careful consideration the decision has been made to postpone this year’s women only Equate-ConStructED Scotland event. We hope to be able to run this programme at a later date this year.
Equate Scotland in partnership with ConStructEd Scotland is delighted to offer this 3-day hands-on construction experience aimed at women students in their 2nd year of a civil engineering or built environment related degree or HNC/HND level college students.
Attendance at this course provides an opportunity for students to develop hands on practical skills and knowledge that has real value in the Construction industry. The experience is designed to give you an increased understanding of how engineered solutions constantly evolve during the construction phase of a project. During the course students will work in teams to design and build a scaled down version of a wind turbine, under the guidance of a professional contractor and an engineering consultant.
Places on this free 3-day course are free but spaces are limited. To reserve your place on the training course please complete our online application form below.
