Student body organises mystery tour


A HISTORICAL mystery tour of the capital's engineering and hospitality delights is on offer to young engineers next week as the Association of London Graduates and Students (ALGS) celebrates its 50th anniversary - two years early.

The tour, on Tuesday, will be run as a treasure hunt with teams of three or four competing for prizes. A hot buffet is provided and there is no entrance fee.

'It's a great chance to meet other engineers and chew the fat about the issues of today - like how much everyone's being paid, ' said ALGS's Marcus Rooney.

Other institutions have been invited to help foster stronger links with young professionals across the wider engineering community.

'A lot of the skills we need are the same, such as management and soft skills, ' said Rooney. 'It could really help in initiatives such as the promotion of engineering in schools.'

The ALGS dates back to 1953 when the Association of London Students (1908) added Graduates to its title after the introduction of the grade of graduate member the previous year.
