Forensic engineering guest speaker

Tom Robb, from Finch Consulting, came into New College Durham to give a guest speech about forensic engineering.  Tom demonstrated an enthusiasm for forensic engineering which the students found engaging. Students were opened up to a whole new view regarding the importance of the skills and knowledge involved in engineering, and the impact they can have on everyday aspects of life.

Jeff Bower, Curriculum Manager, commented: “Tom used case studies which enthused learners to ask questions, and debate potential solutions, outcomes and consequences. Learners particularly enjoyed when Tom referred to his job role as “CSI Yorkshire”. Following the presentation, the group spoke enthusiastically about potentially pursuing a career in the field of forensic engineering.”

Tom Robb said "I enjoyed speaking at New College Durham. The college staff, students and facilities were fantastic, and I would certainly take any opportunity to return and talk again."
