EngineeringUK report

Our flagship publication Engineering UK: The state of Engineering, published for the 20th time in 2018, is a detailed examination of engineering's economic contribution and the composition of its workforce, as well as the extent to which the supply through the education and training pipeline is likely to meet future needs and demand for engineering skills.

In their foreword, Professor Dame Ann Dowling, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, and Malcolm Brinded, Chairman of EngineeringUK, identify some of the key challenges and make some recommendations to improve the supply of engineers and others with related skills.

For 2018, the structure and look and feel of the report has been revised to improve its usability. In addition, all report data tables and charts have been published – often in more detail than is presented in the report itself – and are available in a companion resource available in Excel format.

The full report and Excel resource can be downloaded free of charge alongside a shorter synopsis - there is also an interactive fact wall with themed highlights.
