Think you know engineering? Think again

3 Oct 2019

This is Engineering Day will take place on 6 November 2019. It is a campaign to bring engineering to life for young people, and give more people the opportunity to pursue a career that is rewarding, future shaping, varied, well paid and in-demand. The aim of the campaign is to show more young people what engineering really looks like, and how it could be an exciting and rewarding career path.

To shatter the stereotypes that are discouraging young people from taking up engineering careers, the Royal Academy of Engineering has launched a public photo library and is appealing to all those companies and individuals influencing society’s image of engineering to use this free resource in its ambition to change search engine image results for the word ‘engineer’, so that, over time, visibility of the true variety and diversity of engineering will increase.
