Overview

EngineeringUK is a not-for-profit organisation, which works in partnership with the engineering community to promote the vital role of engineers and engineering and to inspire the next generation.

We work with a wide range of partners to deliver engaging careers activity that challenges outdated perceptions of the industry and showcases the real jobs and careers available to people with the right qualifications. We underpin this activity with incisive research that paints a clear picture of the state of UK engineering and the impact of inspiring outreach activity. Our ambition is to reach 1m young people a year with inspiring engineering engagements.

Engineering makes a significant contribution to the economy, to employment and to society as a whole. However, given the demand for engineers outstrips supply, more needs to be done to showcase the range of career opportunities available in 21st century engineering. We need more young people to understand the importance of continuing to study maths and science – the subjects they’ll need to pursue a STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) career.

Through Tomorrow’s Engineers, the annual Big Bang Fair, the Big Bang Competition and the Big Bang Near Me Fairs which take place across the UK throughout the year, we’re showing young people from all backgrounds how their studies could lead to a rewarding career as a STEM professional.
