Energy services group Technip has celebrated the National Women in Engineering Day by hosting an open evening at its Westhill offices.
The June 23 event, aimed at promoting engineering career opportunities to secondary school age pupils, attracted over 100 attendees.
The event featured guided tours of the Technip workshops as well as an introduction to engineering institutions including the Women’s Engineering Society whose representative was also at the event.
“We have a responsibility to do all we can to encourage the next generation of women into engineering roles and to highlight the vast job opportunities the industry can offer,” said Bill Morrice, managing director of Technip UK.
“The response we had from the pupils was really encouraging and we hope to see many of them back in our offices in the future.”
