Tech Industry Gold alumni inspire prospective students

Tech Industry Gold alumni are presenting insights about the world of tech to 16 to 17-year-olds who are considering a career and higher education in STEM.

Over the summer months, the Engineering Development Trust (EDT) is facilitating these online 1-hour sessions to schools across the UK.

The sessions are presented by a fantastic selection of panellists who are making headway in their careers following their graduation from universities offering Tech Industry Gold accredited degrees.

The Tech Industry Gold alumni include:

Alex Dalley from Deloitte

Ryan Clifford from Fiserve

Sina Haghighat from Shell

Kim Hutchinson from DevOps Group

Matt Long from Swisscom

Yasmin Martin from Salesforce

Luke Pilfold-Thomas from Aitemology

Matt Rigby from Deloitte

David Sint from IBM

Kainat Tariq from Capgemini

At the sessions, students hear about each alumnus’ career journeys, their best moments and most challenging times in their careers to date, and what they would say now to their 17-year-old self. The sessions offer a breadth of information on the pathways available to students, plus top tips, to help them make informed decisions about their next steps into the tech world.
