Young Engineers Programme (YEP)

Aberdeen branch has now launched the 2022YEP which will run for a full year from January.

The branch received 50 applications for this session, and after a thorough review by branch committee members, 20 applicants were selected for the programme and 3 were selected as reserves. Also 15 applications were found suitable for future YEP programmes and were advised to re-apply for YEP 2024. The first session was held on 27th January by Zoom due to the current uncertainties regarding the COVID restrictions in Scotland. At present the February talk is likely to be similarly organised online, although it is hoped to hold subsequent presentations in-person.

The full 2022 syllabus is given  below.
