Tomorrow’s Engineers Week shines a spotlight on engineers and engineering careers. It is an opportunity to highlight to young people the incredible things engineers work on and the range of jobs available in the industry.
Tomorrow’s Engineers Week takes place annually in November. The week took place 7-11 November 2016
The engineering industry needs more talented people, in fact it needs 182,000 each year. By showcasing the various career opportunities and highlighting the different ways that engineers shape our world, Tomorrow’s Engineers Week aims to get young people of all backgrounds, girls and boys, excited about what engineering has to offer. Inspiring the next generation of engineers will help secure UK engineering’s position as a global leader.
Tomorrow’s Engineers Week is for everyone, but focuses on capturing the imagination of young people.
Tomorrow’s Engineers is very well connected:
Each year schools, universities, companies, professional institution, clubs and individual engineers find creative ways to shine a spotlight on engineering careers during Tomorrow’s Engineers Week. Here are just a few ideas. To find out about what went on last year, see here.
