We work in partnership with hundreds of organisations, all of which share in our vision for a UK with the diverse workforce needed for engineering and technology to thrive and to drive economic prosperity, improve sustainability and achieve net zero
We collaborate, co-create and share. We want to really drive up the quality and collective impact of engineering engagement activities and believe in working together and sharing our tools, insights and expertise. We curate and share best practice online and through events and we analyse what enables, inspires or deters young people from choosing a career in engineering and technology.
We form strategic partnerships to broaden reach especially to underrepresented groups, including with Careers & Enterprise Company, Department for Education, Engineering Council, Royal Academy of Engineering, STEM Learning and UK Research and Innovation. And we are part of the National Engineering Policy Centre
We engage and inspire. We participate in and drive inspirational campaigns which transform the perception of engineering of young people and their influencers. We target our programmes to students from groups underrepresented in engineering and tech and try to have proportionate participation across the UK.
Our membership comprises the Professional Engineering Institutions and some of the country’s best-known engineering companies, while more still work with us as sponsors of The Big Bang, programme funders, as contributors to Neon and as partners in our research.
We are a not-for-profit organisation, funded predominantly via the professional registration fees of individual engineers, as well as the support of a range of businesses, trusts and foundations, and a Corporate Membership scheme.
Our 2022 accounts are available to download.
We all want everyone to feel they belong and thrive at EngineeringUK. We understand that we have different needs, we value our differences and create opportunities for every voice to be heard.
We believe this is key to achieving diversity at all levels in the organisation and helps us deliver our mission to encourage more young people from all backgrounds to work in engineering and technology.
