Commonside Community Development Trust
The United KingdomÂ’s engineering sector has vacant positions and there are not enough skilled workers to fill them. The Commonside Community Development Trust hopes to inspire local students to pursue engineering by starting a community-wide outreach initiative. To ensure that Commonside has the proper materials and information to effectively implement this outreach initiative we completed three objectives. We determined reasons why students in the London borough of Merton were not choosing engineering as a career. We outlined engineering outreach programs that incorporate Merton history and influential engineers who lived in the borough. We provided Commonside with recommendations for approaching private-sector companies with the intent of forming partnerships.
