    Details

    Provisional start date: 08 April 2024

    In the CYF+ process your goal is to demonstrate the profile of an engineer at a high performing company. This series of challenges was designed by a panel of engineers from top companies to help you demonstrate that profile. Key skills include:

    • Problem solving - You can solve problems in a systematic way, and you can explain your approach to others.
    • Systems thinking - You can trace the flow of data through a system, and you can explain how the system works to others.
    • Communication - You can communicate effectively with others, both verbally and in writing. This doesn’t mean knowing all the answers; it means being able to research things you don’t know, and being able to ask for help when you need it.
    • Collaboration - You can work effectively with others, and you can learn from them.
    • Self-management - You can manage your own time and priorities, and you can learn independently.
