A number of degree courses make it conditional for students to complete a year in industry before beginning their course. This will make it impossible for them to complete the minimum period of voluntary work and will, therefore, penalise them.
Engineering is a wealth creator. It enables us all to live life with more ease and comfort. It is essential that these financial barriers are removed to attract the brightest into the profession.
