Young engineers from one of TWI’s Industrial Member companies visited the organisation’s Cambridge headquarters recently to find out more about how TWI supports their work.
Graduate engineers visit TWI to capitalise on oil and gas expertise and knowhow
The group of engineers from offshore technology specialist INTECSEA travelled up to Cambridge for a ‘lunch and learn’ day, part of a series of events that TWI regularly hosts for Member companies wishing to introduce new recruits and graduates to its services.
TWI’s Oil, Gas and Petrochemicals Programme Manager, Caroline Young, led the engineers on a tour of TWI workshops and engineering laboratories, highlighting technology capabilities and equipment relating to a number of projects recently completed for the oil and gas sector. The visit concluded with a presentation of products and services available for use by TWI Members plus an introduction to The Welding Institute – the arm of TWI that provides professional registration and support to welding and joining personnel around the world.
