Our Managing Director, Steve Abley, presented to University of Canterbury Professional Engineering Development undergraduate students today. The presentation was on the role of the consulting engineer within society and the role a graduates play when entering the work force with various organisations, with a specific focus on consulting engineering. The presentation was particularly 'lively' with one of the students, Jack, doing a great job pantomiming the role of a recent graduate.
