If you are an employer or engineer we want you to tell young people about your amazing job. If you're a school, college, university or parent, we want you to help young people to uncover their future in engineering.

How? With #TEWeek15: Mission Inspiration.

The industry is faced with a problem. How to attract the best and brightest talent to the 1.82 million engineering roles we will need before 2022. 

Tomorrow’s Engineers Week shines a spotlight on engineering careers in a way that young people, and particularly girls, may have never considered before:

• Who creates moisturiser?
• How do engineers save lives?
• Where do they make space probes in the UK?
• How do you build an app?

We're calling for employers, organisations and educators across the country to join forces to host engaging activities that showcase real engineers and real engineering. We want to bring the industry alive for young people.

What do you do?

Your help could be:
• A hands-on activity
• An interactive discussion
• A live online Q&A
• Or something different!

It can be anything as long as it inspires and puts the spotlight on engineering.

Let's show young people exactly what it means to be an engineer. Find out more about getting involved in the campaign in our Tomorrow's Engineers Week toolkit here.


Mission Inspiration: Lily France and Nayeeb Chowdhury - #TEWeek15 engineering vloggers and ambassadors 

Meet Lily and Nayeeb - our two ambassadors for this year’s Tomorrow’s Engineers Week. Lily and Nayeeb's mission is to uncover the exciting engineering processes behind young people's favourite brands. Lily studies physics and maths at A-level and lives in Lancashire, Nayeeb is about to start his third year studying chemical engineering at University College London.

They'll be helping us to bridge the gap between young people and STEM careers by vlogging on our YouTube channel.
