2018 has been designated ‘The Year of Engineering’, with a week of launch activities running from 15th to 19th January.
This government-backed campaign aims to give young people, their parents and teachers the opportunity to take a closer look at engineering as a choice of career.
If your business operates within the engineering field, there are plenty of opportunities to support the campaign.
Here are some of the key messages the Year of Engineering will be promoting:
- engineering careers are varied, creative and innovative with lots of routes into the profession;
- a career in engineering is likely to be rewarding, meaningful and capable of making a real difference to people’s lives; and
- this is a chance for kids, parents and teachers to come face-to-face with engineering experiences and role models.
There are lots of ways schools, families and engineering businesses can get involved with the campaign throughout the year. And, if your business is engineering, this is your chance to inspire the next generation of engineers!
