The knowledge I gained from that apprenticeship is still useful today. Not just the technical knowledge, but especially health and safety. A grinder is as dangerous today as it was 30 years ago. I think that the example of bring a welding machine to the class-room is non-profitable; because You will need PPE for everybody, plus the risks associated with a machinery handling high voltage, use something more down to earth, Dr.

TC Chandran. My practical experience started aged 9. OK so I had too, because I had taken it appart on my own to find out how it works. It was the best way for me to learn. I allways struggled with the theory part of engineering. You need to start early and learn by doing, and asking questions. Eventually, I not only put my toys back together, but had them working as well.

I doubt there is any real panacea for this problem. Ideally a student engineer will have a combination of the practical and the technical. It takes time to enquire both. I did one day and two evenings at college and the other four days in the works, the apprentice school initially learning to file, turn, shape etc.. Then a drawing office, factory floor, administrative office, test department, research laboratory and so on for five years. All controlled by my employer; not the college.
Passing my final exams gave me Graduate status in my Institution. I have never understood why this system was dismantled. I still regard it as the best. We always have work experience young people but the conditions are somewhat restrictive, like only two weeks allowed to them and general paranoia about factory conditions by the schools.
Extend the work experience for school age kids to at least 4 weeks , is my view. University apprenticeship did me proud. The initial break from academia is a relief and gives purpose to the following 3 years. Gives the best of both worlds. Bring back the EITB 1st year practical grounding in all disciplines.
While I was studying in East Germany, one important part was 6 months mandatory research internship with essay.
- Ghost Of A Chance (A Chintz n China Mystery, Book 1);
- Truth in context: an essay on pluralism and objectivity.
- Explore civil engineering with through practical knowledge and exam oriented question practice.
Plus 6 months final research work with final essay. In summer holidays we worked in factories or construction sites to earn some money. And at the start of each year we had to work 2 weeks in the harvest. In addition there might have been some additional work in Winter when the open pit lignite mines were frozen. Admission to university required at least 1 year experience in practical work.
Bring back the 5 year apprenticeship to get real life experience and maturity and then go to university. PS — I also had to pay for my university education and take unpaid leave.

Having been a Royal Air Force Apprentice I can only vouch for the superiority of that type of training, I dare say the Army and Navy apprentice schools all come into this category. We studied in the morning and did practical in the afternoon. I was lucky enough to have an employer who paid for the day release then the evening courses. Prior to this, when I left schooI I spent a year on full time, ONC, production based engineering course covering both theory and practical work, although unsuccessful in getting an apprenticeship at this point I then proceeded to do a full time EITB engineering course with ONC on day release and night school.
Lock a group of say eight students in a room, where, to escape, the team need to perform a number 8?
Practical Knowledge Engineering : Richard V. Kelly :
Each student leading on one task. Tasks for example …Wiring a 13A plug, welding, soldering, fault finding and repairing a ball cock, cutting a thread on a rod, drilling and tapping a hole, disassembling something, assembling something else, producing a flowchart or similar for a simple task e. Opportunities to change the tests and could be the basis of a competition? At that time I was taken on as an Undergraduate Apprentice by a large aerospace company.
Four years hard work, but the result was an immediately employable engineer…. Degrees could be managed within a similar system with perhaps an additional year. Frankly, it was heaven and we even had a small paypacket!! We came out of our apprenticeship, turning up on time, working as a team and with sufficient knowledge and skill to start doing productive work from day one.
Whilst I was doing my training at the now defunct Raleigh Industries in Nottingham, a new young individual arrived in the Standards room whilst I was in there. The chief engineer asked him where he had come from and he said university. I am setting my grand-children down this path by challenging them to come-up with their ideas about various processes: so that they own such!
Employers want colleges to produce students who are educated and experienced. Collages are there to educate experience comes from the employer.
I am still gaining experience after 40 years. Remove their electronic gear and make them read technical books and literature. Get out into industry and get amongst the machinery and get dirty. Then write some comprehensive reports that can be submitted to their peers for review.
A significant challenge should be to write a technical article and achieve publication, or deliver a technical article at a forum. Charles Eden ….
The iconic aircraft, Concorde was being assembled there and the earliest Olympus engines built and tested. My nephew now works for Rolls Royce in the same building at Patchway, near Bristol. I was lucky enough to have a proper apprenticship, with time in work between college and uni sandwitch course this had a fully laid out program of which departments I was to work in and length of time, so I recieved a full overview of the business before graduating. This was for the NCB, and like lots of nationised industries GEGB, gas board, British Rail, etc they had the time and resources to do this and turned out lots of very competent engineers, who are now almost all near retirement.
Since setting up on my own I have worked in many industries as a consultant and unfortunately not often found the same level of practical and theoretical knowledge. Some of the best Engineers have come up from the shop floor, with a very pragmatic approach. Some of the worst have been Oxbridge types who rarely venture outside of the their offices.
How to improve the training, I would look to other countries such as Germany, Japan, USA etc, where the Engineer has a higher status and look at their solutions and cherry pick the ideas that suit the UK best. The problem will be the costs involved, so firms will find it cheaper to import Engineers in the future, someone else having paid for the training.
When I studied Mech Eng at IC in the s, they refused to take me straight from school, although I had a family background in engineering. The first college long vacation was spent at the factory, including maintenance operations during the works holiday fortnight, while the second was spent on work placement at an unrelated factory in Adelaide, courtesy of a program supported by the UK and AUS governments. The apprenticeship concluded with 2 years in the design department.
