Kirsten Williamson, Founder & CEO, Petrus

As we approach the end of 2021, we’d like to share our appreciation with everyone who has contributed to the success of our projects and programmes this year. Read on for some of our highlights and a message from Petrus Founder and CEO Kirsten.


This year we have been privileged to work with individuals from some of the leading companies and universities around the world as clients, speakers, coaches and partners, providing valuable insights on the world of engineering education, skills for the future and employability. Bringing industry and education together to enable young people worldwide to achieve their potential is at the heart of everything we do at Petrus and we are so grateful and proud of everything we’ve been able to accomplish with your support this year. Thank you!

our services


The Global Learning Expedition

Our experiential learning programme for students worldwide is going from strength to strength. With inspirational talks, skills workshops, career insights, networking sessions and creative teamwork supported by world-class coaches, all participants in these week-long immersive online events gain essential workplace skills to hit the ground running on their career-search. We’re thrilled that this high impact initiative is now progressing in the EIC Accelerator programme thanks to the evaluation of European Innovation Council (EIC) experts.
Contact us to get involved in our 2022 programmes.


Global Engineering Deans Council (GEDC) Industry Forum

Engineering and technology leaders from the private sector and education reflected together on lessons learned over the challenging past 18 months. We explored how universities, companies and our stakeholders can work better together to prepare for and pre-empt the global challenges that lie ahead around topics such as ‘Embedding Sustainability in Engineering Education’, ‘Virtual Labs and Collaboration’ and ‘The Engineer of the Future’.
Be inspired for 2022 with the creative ideas in our interactive idea book.

We’ve given our YouTube channel a fresh new look and boosted our library with the best presentations from our award-winning projects of recent years. Here you can discover great practice in university-industry relations, diversity & inclusion, campus engagement, innovation & student challenges and hear direct from the next generation of talent on how they see the future!

Virtual Internships Academy

Within the Erasmus+ programme we’ve joined a group of expert companies, universities and NGOs to develop the Virtual Internship Academy - a digital learning platform to prepare all stakeholders for virtual internships in Higher Education. The platform will serve as a learning and facilitating tool for students & trainees, companies & mentors of host organisations, university career offices & Erasmus traineeship coordinators.
Stay tuned for updates on our social media in 2022!


We welcomed 3 interns to the team thanks to our partnership with IAESTE. Claudia, Nirav and Gaby gained valuable experience as part of The Global Learning Expedition and GEDC Industry Forum. We also celebrated two well deserved #TeamPetrus promotions with Stefan Moroeanu becoming a Digital Specialist within our Design and Digital team and Dominic Sproston progressing to Senior Account Manager within the Campaigns team.

Wow, what a year! I feel grateful for the trust and confidence placed in us by companies, organisations, universities and students world-wide. I’m also extremely thankful to have such a great team of professionals who work so hard with me to bring our projects to life. And I’m genuinely excited for everything we’re planning for 2022 – until then, enjoy a happy and healthy festive season!
