There are many volunteer opportunities available for engineering professionals. Read on to see which of the following opportunities best suit you.
Our STEPS programme is a not-for-profit outreach initiative aimed at informing young people, parents and teachers about the world of engineering. Volunteers visit local schools to talk about careers in engineering and inspire the next generation of engineers.
We rely on experienced interviewers to assess members' experience and qualifications against the requirements for professional titles. Volunteering as an interviewer or assessor allows you to ensure high professional standards in the industry.
Mentors support members applying for a professional title through the experiential learning route. Your experience and helpful approach can help a peer examine their career in relation to the competences required for the professional titles.
Our regional branches, engineering divisions and societies are run by dedicated committees of volunteers. Volunteering to participate in a committee is an ideal way to gain the most from your membership.
Are you an expert in an upcoming or cutting edge field of engineering? You can contribute to future seminars or panel discussions to share knowledge with members who work in a similar field.
We give engineering students a dedicated career session in their final year of college. Graduate engineers are invited to attend and present a short 15 minute presentation on the skills that engineering companies expect in graduates
