Tilly Shilling Initiative

Tilly Shilling Initiative

Encouraging diversity and inclusivity in engineering.

We are a group who are passionate about promoting engineering as a profession; we hope to have a positive effect on changing the industry.

As professionals within the engineering industry, we want to use our position to inspire and engage students of all ages, and to show them how challenging and rewarding a career in engineering can be. 

Our members are working towards this goal by volunteering their time for activities such as:

  • Teacher engagement
  • Attendance at school and university careers events
  • Hosting young engineer events at the MTC
  • STEM activities
  • Mentoring

Check out the video below to hear from Kerry, one of our engineering apprentices.

The MTC is an unparalleled environment for a young engineer wishing to break into the industry. The work that we are doing here today will shape the manufacturing industry for years to come. To be part of that is not only exciting but a real privilege.
