Tomorrow’s Engineers Week 2019 – Latest
Engineering is at the cutting edge: from robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence, to mobile phones, medical technology, advanced sports equipment and driverless cars, engineering is shaping the future all around us. Engineering is for everyone: whatever your background and whatever you love – whether it’s fashion, film, sport, music or technology.
Now in its seventh year, Tomorrow’s Engineers Week provides a unique opportunity for engineers, employers, universities and schools to showcase how engineers working in all sectors are on a mission to make the world a better place.
The programme, led by the engineering community, provides a platform for employers to work effectively with schools to inspire more young people to consider a career in engineering.
We need more engineers! And for that we need more young people to understand how what they learn at school is used in the real world. Giving young people the chance to talk directly to engineers and engage in hands-on activities that showcase and contextualise engineering is at the heart of the Tomorrow's Engineers approach.
We strongly share this message and actively showcase both the importance of engineering and the impact it has on society. This is at the core of our ethos - Engineering a Better Society. And by engaging with the next generation, we can show them how interesting, wide ranging and rewarding engineering is.
Delivering national impact through local coordination, Tomorrow's Engineers has directly reached over 300,000 young people in the past year. The vision is to create a national network of employers working locally to reach 1m young people every year with effective careers interventions from STEM employers. Tomorrow's Engineers quality careers resources provide clear, consistent information for young people aged between 9 - 16, their teachers and parents. We look forward to supporting this initiative as we continue to promote engineering through our work, our talks and events at The Building Society, and our engagement with schools.
