Encouraging Diversity and Inclusivity in STEM

We are passionate about promoting engineering and other STEM professions within our industry. We do this through both STEM workshops and events, and by supporting diversity and inclusivity in the STEM community.

We focus on promoting STEM within the community, to show that is it a viable career choice for anyone! This includes, but is not limited to school visits, workshops and events. As professionals within the engineering industry, we want to use our position to inspire and engage everyone into a STEM career.

We volunteer our time for events and activities such as:

  • STEM Workshops
  • Teacher engagement
  • School and University careers events
  • University Engagement

All of our workshops and activities are tailored to audiences of any age and specific STEM subjects if required, both onsite at the MTC or at a venue of your choice. Please see our latest STEM workshop leaflet for examples of our offerings.

If you are interested in organising an event with us or have any queries, please email tsi.events@the-mtc.org

New high spec equipment and software for research projects is continually coming into the business. This gives many training opportunities and with work being so varied I don't think I would ever have the opportunity to get bored at the MTC. The MTC is also very determined to progress engineers to chartered status. This supports my development but also awards me with an internationally recognised qualification.
