Young Engineers Programme (YEP)
The latest Young Engineer Programme kicked off on the 8th January and was held at the same venue and time as the London branch meeting. Bill Hedges gave an introduction to the programme, and a review of YEP 2018 was given by participants Caroline Allanach and Stephen Shapcott, all coordinated by Alan Denney. This year there are 32 young engineers taking part, compared with 14 in 2018. This is a clear indication that the industry is healthy and on a growth spurt.
The first talk was given by Dr Jane Lomas, and dealt with the “Basics of Corrosion” as the lead into the series of nine lectures throughout the year. The programme will culminate on 12 November when the YEP candidates will present their solutions to the case study at the London branch meeting at the Royal Overseas.
The young engineers then had time to talk to the established engineers attending the LB meeting over refreshments.
