Insights - Sustainable engin

Interested in a career in policy? Look no further, attend Alumni Insights: Careers in Policy.

Science and engineering are vital to public policymaking. The current global policy challenges – impacts of climate change, aging society, artificial intelligence – will all require a diverse set of voices and backgrounds to tackle them. There is no better time for someone interested in these questions to move into the policy world and to help solve some of the biggest issues that we face as a society.

Join our next webinar in the series of Alumni Insights to hear from an exceptional panel of policy professionals from our alumni community. Together they will discuss the range of opportunities for those interested in policy careers and the skills and experiences that employers in this area are looking for. There will be time for Q&A and we encourage you to submit your questions for the panel during the registration process.

This event will feel especially relevant for Imperial alumni who graduated within the last ten years, as well as students.
