Engineer case studies Profiles of real-life engineers, what they do on the job and how they got there

Designed to Inspire Designed to Inspire (2013), a project delivered by the Royal Academy of Engineering, resulted in the development of a range of materials aimed at encouraging more engineering students – especially those from black and minority ethnic backgrounds – to move from education into employment. Other materials including posters, postcards and individual engineer case studies can be downloaded from the Tomorrow’s Engineers website.

Aerospace MSc bursary scheme

The government’s Aerospace MSc Bursary Scheme has been developed in partnership with leading employers, to help the UK stay ahead of its global competitors by developing the aerospace sector’s professional workforce.

Engineering Leadership Standard Awards

The Standard Award programme is open to all British engineering undergraduates for the duration of their degree. It is designed to further develop their interest in engineering as a career through a series of free activities and short courses organised by The Royal Academy of Engineering.

Link for young entrepreneurs

Enterprise Hub Launchpad Competition The Launchpad Competition will award the brightest young entrepreneurs in the UK between the ages of 16-25 with a cash prize and bespoke support to start and grow a leading technology company.

Links for teachers:

Teaching and learning resources Resources created by teachers and engineers that aim to engage school students with science, technology and mathematics by placing these subjects in engineering contexts.

Engineering Further Education Programme and resources for post-16s supporting students to remain committed to the subject and take the next step on the path to a career in engineering, whether on to higher level study within further education, on to an apprenticeship scheme, on to employment as technicians or on to degree level study.

UK ForCE The UK Forum for Computing Education (UKForCE), hosted by the Academy, brings together representatives from across the communities of education, computer science, digital media, IT, engineering and telecommunications. It is an independent committee advocating for the computing community on 5-19 computing issues. UKForCE  is independent of government and awarding organisations. It will work towards improving computing education across all education sectors of the UK.

Education for Engineering (E4E) Education for Engineering is the mechanism by which the engineering profession offers coordinated and clear advice on education to UK government and the devolved assemblies. It deals with all aspects of learning that underpin engineering with particular emphasis on mathematics, science, ICT and design and technology. It is both proactive and reactive to ensure that the education system remains appropriate to meet the current and future challenges facing society. It is hosted by The Royal Academy of Engineering with a wide membership drawn from the professional engineering community.

Research on engineering education The Academy develops research on approaches to pedagogy and experience led learning for engineering education. A selection of reports can be found here.  The Royal Academy of Engineering provides leadership and promotes excellence across all fields of engineering, to the benefit of society.

The Academy’s activities are shaped, led and delivered by its exceptional Fellowship, which represents the nation’s best practising engineers, innovators and entrepreneurs, often in leading roles across business and academia.
