Engineering Futures Group

ATG Training, an apprenticeship provider to the manufacturing and engineering sector, and Enterprise Marketing Solutions, a marketing agency serving the manufacturing sector, have partnered to create the Engineering Futures Group.

The aim of this group is to create a forum for businesses and their engineers in the Buckinghamshire area, to hear from speakers and discuss topics that affect their industry, and enable them to network. We intend to hold these events twice a year.
