Tomorrow: explore career opportunities at Granta's Open House

Granta Design issues an open invitation to its informal and fun Open House Evening, taking place tomorrow (Tuesday 21 November) from 6.30pm at its Cambridge office on Clifton Road. The no-cost event offers the opportunity to explore what life is like at a growing company with top engineering customers (e.g. Rolls-Royce, NASA, Boeing, Jaguar Land Rover) and a highly skilled multi-cultural team.

For more than 20 years, Granta’s mission has been to lead materials information technology: that’s software that helps companies to manage information about the engineering materials that they use (metal, plastics, and composites) and to make smart decisions about those materials that enable better, greener, safer products. Granta also provides software and resources to support materials education. Founded by Professors Mike Ashby and David Cebon as a spin-out from Cambridge University Engineering Department in 1994, the company has grown to support a worldwide customer base of engineering enterprises and universities.
