Year of Engineering 2018

What is the Year of Engineering?

The Year of Engineering is a government campaign showcasing engineering achievements and highlighting the value of engineering careers. Aimed at 7-16 year olds the initiative is an opportunity to celebrate the contribution that engineering makes to our country and encourage young people to join the profession.

What are we doing?

Over the course of 2018 we will be taking a closer look at engineering, inspiring the next generation of innovators and problem solvers through activities and events looking at themes such as:

  • Students solving real life problems
  • Diversity in engineering
  • Raising aspirations
  • Careers
