To celebrate National Careers Week (6 to 11 March), EngineeringUK is launching a new careers resource designed to help entice young people into STEM careers.

From idea to career’ is a free, downloadable booklet for young people, teachers and careers advisors which showcases the breadth of rewarding careers available in engineering and technology. From aerospace and energy to manufacturing and software design, the resource is designed to educate and excite young people about careers in 12 engineering disciplines.

Collaboration across the engineering sector

The resource has been produced by EngineeringUK’s Careers Working Group - a collaborative group of careers, education, outreach and marketing specialists drawn from across the engineering and STEM community. The group produces a variety of free and interactive careers resources which are available to download on Neon, a website bringing together the UK’s best engineering outreach opportunities and inspiring careers resources in one place.

Eleanor Eyre, Head of Careers at EngineeringUK, comments “There are so many exciting, rewarding and impactful careers that exist within engineering and technology, however young people often aren’t always aware that they exist. We’re delighted to have worked in partnership with the engineering community, including over 25 professional engineering institutions, to create a resource which showcases the breadth and scope of engineering-related careers.”
