Outreach Events and Activities

We offer a range of in-school workshops and on-campus events that focus on engineering and electrification. These activities aim to inspire young poeple and raise their aspirations and awareness of careers in electrification. 


The Institute of Electrification and Sustainable Advanced Manufacturing (IESAM) was created to address the urgent skills shortage and training challenge in the North East of England. 

With our partners, we’re bridging the skills gap, and providing high-quality training, for those looking to pursue a career in:
