Engineering the Future

As part of Alton College’s preparation for T Levels, we are reaching out to local employers to come in and speak to students about life in the workplace and their career journeys to date. The initiative started recently with the visit of a young, local engineer, Nadia Domanski from Woking who studied at the University of Bath. She is now working on Oil Rigs for the global Engineering company Schlumberger.
