Rishi Kalra took part in EES in 2009/10, his team was linked up with Arup and he worked on a project to design a multi-functional pavilion.
Rishi attended a Headstart course on General Engineering at Bristol University in 2010.
"From my EES experience, I gained a huge amount of engineering knowledge in addition to leadership skills. I also learned how to use certain three dimensional structural load calculation software, how to deliver good presentations and many other key skills.
My EDT experiences have promoted many different career and degree options helping me become more aware of the possible career pathways in STEM. Thanks to the EDT I am now in a position to make an informed choice about the career that I want to take, by actively placing me in the role of an actual engineer and showing me how great it is"
