Ashwoods Electric Motors exhibited at the STEM Careers Fair, hosted in the Great Hall of the University of Exeter. Alongside 80 other exhibitors, Ashwoods were part of a careers fair aimed at those studying courses in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

Over 1000 undergraduates and postgraduates were in attendance, ensuring a well-trodden thoroughfare and a vibrant buzz of engaging students. Stand 23, proudly donning the Ashwoods Electric Motors livery and IPM 200-33 motor, was not exempt from the busy traffic. Many chatted to the Ashwoods team with backgrounds from varied disciplines, ranging from Mechanical and Electronic Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics, Materials Engineering and Renewable Engineering – amongst others!

What was notable was the interest generated around Ashwoods by those in attendance, some with prior knowledge of the business via our website, and others who were taken in by our IPM motor on display.

The team enjoyed talking to the next generation of engineers, and can report back that the future in the field seems to be bright!
