The Scottish branch of the Association for BME Engineers has launched its 2016 series of Real Projects seminars.

The association is a registered not-for-profit organisation that encourages young people, particularly those of black and minority ethnic (BME) origin, to pursue a career in engineering.

The organisation has already confirmed six events, the first of which is taking place between 5pm and 9pm on Thursday, January 28 at Aberdeen University’s New King’s Building.

The Real Projects series will run throughout 2016 during university term times with seminars due to cover topics including; project management, technical safety, UK offshore wind energy and portfolio-building.

Ollie Folayan, Chairman of AFBE-UK Scotland, said, “These seminars are vitally important as they give students an insight into developing issues in our industry as well the opportunity to add engineering professionals to their network of contacts.”
