What is the Year of Engineering?

The Year of Engineering is a government campaign which celebrates the world and wonder of engineering. 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 the year, we will be taking a closer look at engineering through activities and events under various themes such as:

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