IGS Job Shadowing Program

What is the IGS Job Shadowing Program?

On-the-job learning can be a lifechanging opportunity. It puts a young person at the heart of the action in a real workplace, supercharges their subject knowledge beyond the classroom, and offers access to key contacts that could make the difference to a future career. Meanwhile, host companies benefit from meeting exciting new talent with minimum fuss.

The Program pairs an undergraduate, Masters, or research student with a host business for a one-to-one or virtual day shadowing an engineering professional. It gives the next generation of engineers vital hands-on learning, while businesses gain access to fresh talent and new ideas.
