Engineering shapes the world we live in and makes a vital contribution to society and the economy. The engineering sector generates significant employment, and engineers and technicians are employed across the economy on other non-engineering sectors.
Our research looks at the composition of the engineering workforce, including breakdown by characteristics including age, gender and ethnicity. We analyse employment by region, industry and occupation and look at the engineering in the context of the broader UK economy.
We look at employment and salary trends. Drawing on industry and educational insights, we analyse both the projected demand from industry and the supply through educational pathways. In October 2022, we published research into T Levels, highlighting the challenges we need to overcome to secure the 43,500 industry placements needed by 2024/25.
