On 19th March Hills Road Alumnus Daniel Moss came along to the College to talk about the Year in Industry placement he is currently doing. Since leaving Hills Road last summer Daniel has been working for 42 Technology in St Ives, Cambridgeshire.

The Year in Industry scheme is a 10-12 month paid placement with a STEM based company for pre-university and undergraduate students run by the Engineering Development Trust. Through the year students work alongside real engineers, scientists and software developers to do real work for the company.   The company is expected to develop the students and opportunities are given for them to attend workshops and master classes run by professionals in the industry.

Daniel has a place to study Mechanical Engineering at university this September. Following his talk, Daniel answered questions from students about the scheme, his engineering work and his university application.
