For two months every year the Academy offers placement students and recent graduates the opportunity to learn about our innovative solutions used on real world projects, from the team of engineers who actually delivered them. The Academy not only covers technical subjects but also includes communication and client service skills - essential to excelling as a professional engineer.
The construction industry today is still suffering from the ill effects of the recession. Young people were discouraged from construction-related courses, choosing to follow careers in IT or Finance.
At IN2 we realise that investing in young graduate engineers is not only the future of the company, but also for ensuring development within the wider engineering profession.
The IN2 Academy provides an invaluable opportunity for graduate and student engineers to develop a well-rounded skillset, which is essential to excelling as professional engineers in a range of technical subjects and best-practice soft skills.
Graeme Parker joined in 2004 as an Intern Mechanical Engineer and has successfully progressed his career to reach Director level with IN2.
"When starting in IN2 over 15 years ago, I was an undergraduate in my last year in Bolton St. It was quite a shock to go from purely theoretical work to practical ‘on-the-job’ engineering. The structured tutoring process put in place by the IN2 Directors really brought the subjects to life in a way theoretical learning never could.”
In 2021 twelve students and graduates completed The IN2 Academy across our UK and Ireland offices. We look forward to welcoming new recruits to the IN2 Academy 2022.
"The IN2 Academy has been a fantastic experience during my time as a Mechanical Engineer with IN2. It has been a thoroughly enjoyable learning environment, delivering informative and interactive topical talks ranging from technical aspects in the mechanical design process to overall general meeting etiquette expected from us as engineers. It is the variety and the quality of the information and the interactive way it is presented by the experienced senior team and directors that makes it the successful program that it is."
James Clancy – Mechanical Engineer Intern - Dublin
“I came straight from Ulster University where I studied Architectural Engineering. IN2 Engineering gives me the chance to showcase what I learnt in University and become the Best Mechanical Engineer I can be. The In2 Academy is where I can learn from real-world situations and ask for help and advice with all aspects of M&E and Professional development.”
