Celebrating 10 years of inspiring tomorrow's engineers

Oct 25, 2022

This November marks the 10th annual Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, and in this month’s The Engineer column Dr Hilary Leevers, Chief Executive of EngineeringUK, calls for the whole community to show the next generation the breadth of careers available in engineering and technology.

“The mission that drives everyone at EngineeringUK is to inspire the next generation and create a diverse future workforce that enables UK engineering and tech to thrive. Each November, Tomorrow’s Engineers Week sees the whole community come together to showcase engineering careers and shout about the incredible work engineers and technicians are doing every day.

“This year marks 10 years of Tomorrow’s Engineers Week (#TEWeek22). We will celebrate developments of the past decade, but crucially look forward to the future to think about what new innovations we might see. We are inviting young people to think about what engineering could achieve in the next decade.

“Students will discuss ideas and innovations with their peers as well as engineering professionals and their contributions will be shown in the Future Minds Broadcast, available from the first day of Tomorrow’s Engineers Week (7 to 11 November). This activity will get students talking about the future of engineering in 4 sectors: entertainment, sport, technology and the environment. I can’t wait to hear their ideas about how engineering will shape the future!”
