The Union of Students has been working with the College of Engineering and Technology and the University of Derby to bring together an exciting project supporting the College to grab people’s interest via engaging social media content – which will be appearing on your timelines very soon.
The College of Engineering and Technology is based at the Markeaton Street site and the College runs a massive spectrum of courses such as architectural studies, civil engineering, construction, mechanical and motorsport engineering, product design, computing, live event technology and maths! There are incredible facilities at Markeaton Street, including the STEM Centre
; the University’s latest infrastructure investment which is worth a whopping £12 million!
The Union were able to put together a series of four episodes exploring what happens when the Union of Students meets the College of Engineering and Technology and the exciting content is soon to be released on to Facebook
– so keep your eyes peeled for teasers…
The project allowed for the Union of Students to recruit me as a Marketing Intern in order to help with the campaign and as a MSc Marketing Management student I found this very beneficial for me to expand my marketing experience in a real-life setting.
Whilst undergoing my internship with the Union, I have been able to put together and distribute a survey to students from the College to gain an insight into what students use their social media platforms for and what they would like to see from the Union posts with regards to their courses. I have been working alongside the Union's Marketing team, Dean and Deputy Dean of the College, the University’s Digital Team and also been able to organise the posts ready for the launches of the videos.
Each of the four episodes will be released on Fridays across the Union and University pages, but why don’t you also follow the Dean of the College @DerbyUniDeanET
, and the Deputy Dean @elouisepigden
, to also see our new short form videos created especially for the College’s Open Days.
