For more than 20 years we have published comprehensive reports, briefings and policy documents on the state of engineering in the UK and on key policy issues surrounding science, technology, engineering and maths.
We base everything we do on evidence and we share our analysis and insight widely. Archived below are previous documents with historical data.

This is a research briefing on female underrepresentation in the industry.
This is a research briefing on social mobility in the industry.
This report compares the impact of vocational and graduate engineering education on productivity and lifetime earnings. The report also estimates GVA at sub-sector level.
We commissioned another report from the Cebr, exploring the job multiplier effect of engineering on the UK economy.
Establishes the national benchmark for public perceptions of engineers and engineering.
Understanding our impact and supporting continual learning and improvement is essential to ensure we target resources effectively. Our evaluation team works to ensure that what we do is evidence-based.
That work covers 3 different strands:
Our bursary schemes operate through several of our programmes (Robotics Challenge, Big Bang at School and Big Bang Fair) as well as supporting access to Neon activities. We evaluated their impact using a mix of monitoring data, surveys and interviews.
This evaluation drew on surveys with over 400 students and 68 teachers taking part in the Robotics Challenge heats. We explore which students take part in the programme, their experiences and the benefits they feel they gained from the programme.
Energy Quest is part way through a 3-year external evaluation, exploring changes in the impact students perceive across three iterations of the content. Alongside this external evaluation, we conducted a smaller pre-post evaluation to look at changes in key outcomes for students. We look at matched data for 174 students across three schools.
We surveyed over 1,100 students and over 50 teachers taking part in a Big Bang at School event. We explore their experiences and perceived benefits of taking part and look at which groups of students felt most engaged with the programme.
We evaluate The Big Bang Fair through surveys gathered at the event. Over 2,300 students and over 300 teachers completed a survey about their experience of The Fair (2022) and the benefits they feel they gained from attending.
