Covid-19 and the impact on the engineering industry

Jul 28, 2020

Every month our Chief Executive, Dr Hilary Leevers writes a blog for The Engineer, on topics, news and issues in the engineering industry. 

In this month's blog Hilary reflects on the impact of the pandemic on the engineering sector and the increasing urgency to create opportunities for under-represented groups. 

“The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in great change for employers across the UK, including those in engineering, some of which have transformed their work to directly mitigate the harm caused by the pandemic.

All have had to move fast to keep up with the rapidly changing context – from having to adapt to changing market needs, to moving entire workplaces to remote working or pausing production. We, at EngineeringUK, are trying to capture and share these changes to help inform policy and practice in support of engineering.”
