Programme Diversity Strands

Why EqualEngineers Pathways Programme?

Mentoring takes place over a year, and often continues until the student graduates. In the first 12 months, students also participate in a supporting programme of activities including:

  • In-person career insights and employability workshops.
  • Online programmes supporting students on work readiness, emotional intelligence, employability, and interpersonal skills development.
  • Work experience, placement, internship and graduate opportunities from engineering and technology partners.

The Pathways Programme is not just for Engineers. Many employers fill their engineering and other technical roles from a range of disciplines, particularly graduates of Computing, Mathematics and the Physical Sciences. This allows us to serve multi-disciplinary Schools or Faculties

Why Mentoring Matters

We strongly believe that mentoring is the guidance for growth, confidence, and opportunity. Our programme connects students with professionals in engineering and technology, fostering relationships that often continue beyond graduation. Our aim is to ensure that every student can navigate their career path with the support and wisdom of experienced mentors.

Our Ambition

We aim to extend the reach of our mentoring and development opportunities to every engineering and technology student in the UK. By doing so, we not only enrich individual career paths but also contribute to a more diverse, skilled, and innovative professional community.
