Members of the acoustics team returned to University this month for careers events at the University of Salford and at the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) in Southampton.
Both of the events were specifically aimed at students studying acoustics related courses, so it was a great opportunity to promote what Ramboll has to offer.
As a result of these events, applications have already been received for placement opportunities starting in the summer.
Salford Careers Fair
Rachel Bennett and Raf Orlowski (former student and lecturer respectively) attended the Acoustics, Audio and Video Engineering Event at the University of Salford. The day included an employer panel and tour of the facilities at Media City.
The event was invaluable for meeting students and discussing their interests, and what being a graduate member of Ramboll’s Acoustics team involves. People were interested to hear about our wide range of Acoustics projects, and the opportunities for training and development that Ramboll provides for graduates in general.
For the last few years the ISVR has run a very successful Careers Fair for its students. These include undergraduate students taking MEng and BEng degrees in Engineering Acoustics, postgraduate students taking the MSc in Sound and Vibration Studies and PhD students. The aim of this Careers Fair is to demonstrate to students the wide range of openings available to those with expertise in sound and vibration, as well as giving students and employers a chance to meet and interact.
Thomas Jones and Adrian Popplewell (both former students of the ISVR) travelled to Southampton University on 13th February to present on Ramboll Acoustics and give the students an idea of the exciting projects that acoustics can be involved on. There was a positive feedback and a great deal of interest from students applying for summer and permanent placements.
